Conductor Nicholas McGegan returns to conduct the orchestra and chorus in Mendelssohn’s epic retelling of the Old Testament story of the prophet Elijah. Along with Handel’s Messiah, this piece is considered one of the greatest oratorios ever written, with music of sheer power and emotion. Biographer John Erskine put it best: Mendelssohn’s music “is as heroic as the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and the conception of the prophet Elijah…might have sprung from Michelangelo’s imagination.”
