Ecstatic audiences witnessing Elijah’s premier demanded that Mendelssohn encore no fewer than four choruses and four arias! Slated soloists include “one of America’s most promising young singers” (NPR), Esther Heideman, Christina Wilcox - “elegant, caressing warmth and beautiful legato” (The Washington Post), Alan Bennett - “tonal beauty and emotionally compelling expressiveness” (Monterey Herald), and “a mesmerizing performer” (The News Journal) Kevin Deas.
