Have you ever wondered what the glory of a choir and full orchestra can bring to your life’s musical experience?

The Waterbury Chorale presents Felix Mendelssohn’s ‘Elijah’ in concert with orchestra, and soloists that will leave you with wonderful memories of an unforgettable experience.

But why come to Elijah? Can’t I just listen to it on a recording?

Yes, there are recordings of all major works out there. If you have ever been to a live performance of a major work, you know that the sound cannot compare to that of any recording you can buy.

What’s the deal with Elijah?

To answer this, let’s ask another question…

If you lost running water for a week, how would you respond?

Recent droughts in many parts of the world have led to political and civil instability. Even in the Western U.S. Water is essential for life in so many ways. The fascinating story of a severe drought is told in the Old Testament Book of Kings.

This story will be told musically in the concert Elijah by the Waterbury Chorale along with soloists Soprano: Louise Fauteux, Alto: Caroline O’Dwyer, Tenor: Spencer Hamlin, Baritone Chai-lun Yueh and the Waterbury Chorale Festival Orchestra at 4PM on Sunday April 29 at St. John’s Church-On-The-Green in Waterbury.
