Hartford Chorale

Kelly Hill, alto
Joshua Kohl, tenor

For the first time in its 44 year history, the Hartford Chorale, in cooperation with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, presents Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah in The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts’ magnificent Mortensen Hall. This work is one of the great artistic masterpieces of the choral canon and will be the first full symphonic scale performance of this work in Greater Hartford in the last decade. Elijah is a near-opera without staging, containing dramatic dialogue and MGM-like scenes. The backbone of the libretto comes from the fiery Old Testament Book of Kings and delivers tenderness, intrigue,contests, battles, wins, and losses. Moments of repose are followed by ferocious action with some of the most memorable music of all time.
