Mendelssohn’s Elijah

HOLMDEL, NJ - The Monmouth Civic Chorus invites singers to a Summer Sing of Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn. The Sing is on Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. at the air-conditioned Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, 112 Middletown Road, Holmdel NJ 07733.  The admission fee of $5 at the door includes refreshments and score loan.

Elijah is a masterpiece, last performed by the Monmouth Civic Chorus in 2000. The music is full of warmth and grandeur as it tells the story of the Biblical prophet. Choral music lovers will recognize classic choruses like “He watching over Israel” and “Lift thine eyes.” The Sing includes guest soloists and piano accompaniment, under the baton of MCC Artistic Director, Dr. Mark Shapiro.

Singers are invited to audition for the 2010-11 season, which features Handel’s ever-popular Messiah, Bach’s majestic B Minor Mass, and a musical portrait of Bach’s life and work. Audition appointments are available on Tuesday evenings beginning in September. Singers may sit in on a rehearsal and get acquainted before they audition.
