Mendelssohn's Elijah - Choral Concert
The combined choirs from Billericay, Maldon and Witham Choral Societies are presenting a performance of Mendelssohn’s oratorio Elijah at Christ Church on Saturday 1st April at 7.30pm.
Elijah depicts elements of the life of Elijah from the Bible. It is noted for its melodrama with stirring choruses from the choir responding to the main biblical characters played by the soloists.
There will be five outstanding soloists for this concert.
Among the soloists is tenor John Pierce, the “Singing Painter”, who received four Yeses from the judges in television’s Britain’s Got Talent with his rendition of Nessun Dorma.
Ashley Thompson will conduct this concert and Ed Sutton will accompany on the church’s wonderful organ.
Concert starts at 7.30.
Tickets available in advance from TicketSource.co.uk at £12 with under 16's having free entry. Tickets sold at the venue are £15 each.
