This is the first in a series of talks leading up to the Chapel Choir's performance of Mendelssohn's epic biblical Oratorio, Elijah. In this talk, Michael Ruhling and Daniel Kuehler discuss how the power of biblical narrative transformed the world of classical music in the 18th and 19th centuries. Come and discover how Mendelssohn harnessed the expressive forces of music to dramatize the electrifying story of Elijah's confrontation with the powers of darkness. View the poster here.
