San Jose Symphonic Choir Performs ELIJAH

San Jose Symphonic Choir, under the direction of Maestro Leroy Kromm, will perform Felix Mendelssohn’s acclaimed oratorio, Elijah. The 135-voice choir will be joined by Peter Tuff, baritone, singing the role of Elijah, and Bay Area favorite and Opera San Jose alumnus Christopher Bengochea, tenor, as Obadiah. The performance will also feature Yemonja Stanley, soprano, Cassandra Cardenas, mezzo soprano, members of Vivace Youth Chorus of San Jose, and the Nova Vista Symphony. Mendelssohn’s operatic setting of the Old Testament story about the prophet Elijah was heralded as both a critical and popular success from its very first performance on August 26, 1846 in Birmingham, England. Melodious, dramatic and reminiscent of works by J.S. Bach and George F. Handel, both of whom Mendelssohn idolized, it remains one of the world's most beloved oratorios.

    I'm going to be in the neighborhood and available until 3:30pm sharp. Sounds interesting, but the timing probably won't work.

    Elijah facilitates a "god-off" competition between the jealous God of Israel and Baal. Good rain falls and crops improve. Then there's Elijah's ride up to space in a fiery chariot (spaceship?). Really beautiful music well done. Join us!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
