Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn with professional orchestra and soloists

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 3:00 pm, Lincoln Center

Perhaps the greatest of all nineteenth century oratorios, Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah tells the story of the Old Testament prophet who is charged with returning the people of Israel to the favor of God.  From its imaginative orchestration, to the beauty of its arias and the power of its choruses, to the dramatic portrayal of Elijah himself this composition deserves its place as one of the greatest choral masterworks of all time.

I Have A Dream: Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

Friday, April 6, and Saturday, April 7, 7:30 pm, First United Methodist Church

with professional orchestra and soloists

Martin Luther King, Jr. was fatally shot fifty years ago on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee.  No doubt a dark time in our nation's history, King lived an incredible life and left an extraordinary legacy as the leader of our country's civil rights movement.  In this tribute concert, the Chorale will present Kirke Mechem's stirring choral suite Songs Of The Slave with professional orchestra and soloists along with orchestrated settings of traditional spirituals and gospel music.  Historical figures such as John Brown, Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman will be highlighted along with the music and voices of African-American artists William Grant Still, Rosephanye Powell and Maya Angelou.  The highlight of the concert will be Dana Wilson's powerful musical setting of King's famous "I Have A Dream" speech, delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963.  This concert promises to be one of the most moving in the Chorale's forty year history.
