Mendelssohn Elijah

Saturday, February 25, 2023 – 4:00 pm

During the first half of 2022, Pastor David led us through portions of 1st and 2nd Kings. We initially focused on the prophet Elijah and learned how this man of faith can encourage us in our walk today. 

In 1846 the composer Felix Mendelssohn brought this story to life through music in his masterfully-written oratorio ELIJAH. The Rivermont Sanctuary Choir, together with full orchestra and soloists, will present this dramatic work on Saturday, February 25, at 4:00 pm and Sunday, February 26, at 4:00 pm. Rehearsals will take place this fall on Wednesday evenings as well as on select Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour and on several Saturday mornings. We invite those who have prior singing/choral experience to join us in this endeavor. Please contact Peggy Bettcher for more information.
