Mendelssohn’s ‘Elijah’ 
The Louisville Master Chorale

German Romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn premiered “Elijah” in 1846. It tells the story of the dramatic life of the Biblical prophet as depicted in the “Old Testament’s” two Books of Kings. Imagine that story being sung by the 52 voices of the Louisville Master Chorale. In the season opener, members will sing “Elijah” in English, accompanied by a live orchestra. A pre-concert program at 2:15 p.m. with John Hale, UofL director of liberal studies, will fill in the blanks in your knowledge on Mendelssohn and his “Elijah.”
