Chester Music Society: Mendelssohn’s Elijah

November 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Chester Music Society present Mendelssohn’s ‘Elijah’

Conductor Graham Jordan Ellis
Chester Music Society Choir
Liverpool Sinfonia
Soloists Ruth Holton soprano, Janet Shell mezzo soprano, Christopher Steele tenor and Andrew Greenan baritone.

To commence their 75th Anniversary season, Chester Music Society present ‘Elijah.’  The oratorio Elijah was first performed in Birmingham in 1846 with the composer Mendelssohn conducting the English version that will be used for the concert.  Mendelssohn composed the score and the German version in parallel, based on the works of Bach and Handel, but in a much more operatic style.  The work was an instant success, with the Times critic writing: ‘Never was there a more complete triumph and never a more thorough and speedy recognition of a great work of art’.
