Sunshine Coast Oriana Choir presents Elijah

Concert or Performance

18 May 2019

The Sunshine Coast’s own Oriana Choir is proud to bring you this magnificent Oratorio, in collaboration with the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra. Mendelssohn’s choral and orchestral masterwork depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet, Elijah, with lyrics based directly on the text of the Old Testament books of I and II Kings.

The oratorio was premiered in 1846, and has come to hold its place with the greatest choral works still being performed the world over. Mendelssohn was inspired by his baroque heroes Handel and Bach, but the music is all Mendelssohn, and reflects his genius as a Romantic composer.

Oriana is no stranger to performing major choral works. Past presentations include Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Requiem and Mass In C Minor, Faure’s Requiem and Bach’s Magnificat. Oriana has long desired to perform this very special work, and is delighted to have the opportunity to work with the B.S.O., to stage it as part of the Events Centre’s re-opening celebrations next year.
