HAMILTON COLLEGE AND COMMUNITY ORATORIO SOCIETY PRESENTS MENDELSSOHN'S ELIJAH


The Hamilton College and Community Oratorio Society will present Mendelssohn's Elijah on Tuesday Dec. 3, at 8 p.m. The performance, commemorating the 150th anniversary of its premiere, will take place in Wellin Hall of the Schambach Center for Music and the Performing Arts. Admission is $6 for the general public and $4 for students.

Mendelssohn was one of the first of the great 19th-century Romantic composers. Elijah, first produced at Birmingham (England) in 1846, established him as a composer whose influence equaled that of Handel. Elijah is remarkable for the vitality of the choruses and is one of the few 19th-century oratorios still performed.

The performance at Hamilton will feature Leon Carapetyan as Elijah, with Lauralyn Kolb, Leonora Compton, David Reardon, Frederick Redd and Basil Allen.

For further information, or to order tickets, call the Schambach Center for Music and the Performing Arts at 859-4331.
