ELIJAH

Fresh from the outstanding reviews of Belfast Philharmonic Choir's Good Friday performances of Brahm's Schicksalslied and Mozart's Requiem, The Phil is going back to its roots to finish off the season.  

 

Mendelssohn’s epic oratorio Elijah moves from the eternal battle between good and evil to the personal story of one man’s struggle to hold onto his faith.  It is one of Mendelssohn's most famous works and was the very first piece ever performed by the choir in 1874!

 

Fast forward to 2019 and the 100-strong Belfast Philharmonic Choir is joined by the Ulster Orchestra and soloists to once again sing this dramatic piece, in English, which includes the famous trio Lift thine eyes and well-known choruses Cast thy burden and He that shall endure to the end.  

 

The towering choruses and stirring solos provide a fitting close to the Belfast Philharmonic’s 2018/19 season.
