More information

Please join us for our performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 2 in B-flat major, known as Hymn of Praise. His most ambitious symphonic achievement it was wildly popular during lifetime. Known as "A Symphony-Cantata on Words of the Holy Bible," it is Mendelssohn’s joining of instrumental and vocal celebrations, and a display of the rich traditions of the German symphony and cantata. We will be performing it, and his Psalm 13, in English.

Grand Harmonie, performing on period instruments, will accompany us, as will professional soloists; Elisa Sunshine, soprano, Rebecca Krouner, mezzo-soprano, and Steven Myles, tenor.
