Cantata Singers in rehearsal

Mendelssohn "Elijah" Dress Rehearsal
Free and open to the public
Friday, February 21, 2014
1:30 pm at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall
30 Gainsborough Street, Boston, MA
In the spirit of Cantata Singers’ groundbreaking performances of the Brahms Requiem, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, and the Verdi Requiem, Cantata Singers presents Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah, in the original German, with longtime Cantata Singers member Mark Andrew Cleveland singing the title role.

Elijah is one of the few choral-orchestral icons of the classical canon that Cantata Singers has never tackled in its 50-year history. “Mendelssohn’s efforts to present and promote J.S. Bach’s music are credited for reviving Bach’s reputation and popularity in the 19th century. It was Mendelssohn who presented the first performance of the St. Matthew Passion after Bach’s death” said Music Director David Hoose. “Elijah is a fitting musical centerpiece for Cantata Singers’ 50th Anniversary Season.” >> Read More
