FOELLINGER GREAT HALL

Ian Hobson, music director and conductor

University of Illinois Oratorio Society


The apotheosis of a tragically short career, Felix Mendelssohn's Elijah is an epic oratorio based on one of the most influential prophets of the Old Testament. Faith, curses, confrontation, exile, resurrection, and Elijah's own personal struggle form the dramatic basis for one of the true masterworks of Western music. Ian Hobson conducts Sinfonia da Camera, the University of Illinois Oratorio Society, and soloists in what is sure to be an unforgettable evening.

Mendelssohn: Elijah

This performance will last approximately two hours and 34 minutes, and includes a 20-minute intermission.
