Tina Johns Heidrich, Conductor. Accompanied by the Connecticut Master Chorale Brass and Jazz Bands

From 1966 to 1974, Duke Ellington and his Big Band Orchestra toured the United States and Europe to great acclaim with his remarkable Three Sacred Concerts. This arrangement draws together the best pieces of all three concerts into a single work, recreating what Ellington called "the most important thing I have ever done".

Also on the program is Z. Randall Stroope's "An American Rhapsody". Dr. Stroope assembled this creative song cycle to celebrate our American heartland with distinctive music. It is a stimulating medley underscoring the significant contribution America has made to music using Copland's 'the Promise of Living' as the flagship theme.

Hartford Chorale

Mendelssohn’s Elijah

Mendelssohn’s Elijah

Richard Coffey, conducting
with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra
Stephen L. Bryant, baritone
Meechot Marrero, soprano
Tamara Mumford, alto
Joshua Kohl, tenor

Chorale Music Director Richard Coffey conducts the brilliance and grandeur of one of the greatest choral masterpieces—an oratorio of astounding dramatic power and melodic beauty filled with some of the most beloved choruses. In association with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, the single performance of the Hartford Chorale’s premier of this great work is Thursday, April 14, 2016 (7:30 p.m.) in the Mortensen Hall, The Bushnell.

Mendelssohn’s Elijah is a near-opera without staging, containing dramatic dialogue and MGM-like “scenes.” The backbone of the libretto comes from the fiery Old Testament “Book of Kings” and delivers tenderness, intrigue, contests, battles, wins and losses. The Hartford Chorale is excited to feature baritone Stephen L. Bryant as our Elijah and to have the Hartford Symphony Orchestra on stage as our concert partner for this rarely-performed oratorio. It promises to be a bigger-than-life performance!

Venue: Thursday, April 14, 2016 (7:30 p.m.) in the Mortensen Hall, The Bushnell, Hartford, CT
