Big Sing is a unique opportunity for members of the community to join the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus to sing a selection of movements from Mendelssohn’s Elijah.
Led by Chorus Master Timothy Shantz, this workshop experience includes the opportunity to meet and sing with Chorus members, including the section principals, and discover more about Felix Mendelssohn and his oratorio Elijah, which premiered at the Birmingham Festival in 1846. Participants will learn vocal warm-ups and techniques, and sing movements of “Elijah” including:
“He Watching Over Israel”
“Lift Thine Eyes”
“He That Shall Endure To The End”
“Thanks Be To God”
Big Sing participants will also receive a library copy of the score and 25% off tickets to Mendelssohn’s Elijah performed with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus on 29 + 30 March 2019.
