‘Elijah’ takes Reformed Church stage

The Cowichan Consort Orchestra and Choir presents Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorio Elijah on Saturday, May 2 at the Christian Reformed Church starting at 7:30 p.m. Based on a biblical narrative, it deals with the children of Israel living through drought and famine, and tells of miracles performed by Elijah, with text in English.

Bass-baritone Gary Relyea from Toronto will be singing the lead with sopranos Alexandra Hill and Anna Tamm-Relyea and tenor Ted Rhodes as the other principal soloists.

Kelly Kumbruch, 16, of Shawnigan Lake will also have a solo as well as nine choristers from Sheila Johnson’s Cowichan Valley Youth Concert Choir.

Robert Mari will conduct.

Tickets are available at Volume One Bookstore on Kenneth Street, from Consort members, and at the door. Adults $15 and students $10.
