Trinity Cathedral Presents Mendelssohn’s “Elijah” – July 28th
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral will present Summer Sings! on Thursday, July 28 at 7:00 p.m. The public is invited to participate in an instant performance of Elijah, an oratorio by Felix Mendelssohn. The evening will include an inspiring one-hour rehearsal followed by a one-hour performance of the choral masterwork. Scores will be available on loan for the evening, or participants may bring their own copies. Admission is free, and childcare is available in the cathedral nursery.
Tom Trenney, nationally acclaimed conductor and organist from First-Plymouth Church, Lincoln, will lead the event. Soloists include Jeff Keele, baritone, Carrie Kouma, soprano, Rebecca Shane, alto, and Drew Duncan, tenor.
“Summer Sings! is a popular annual event in Lincoln, and we are pleased to share it with the Omaha community this year,” stated Marty Wheeler Burnett, Canon Precentor at Trinity Cathedral. “Many church, school, and community choirs are on vacation during the summer months, and this event provides a welcome opportunity to join others in singing some of the world’s greatest music.”
The event is envisioned as a community sing where all are welcome. Unlike many choirs, no auditions, extra rehearsals, or long-term commitments are required. “Music, hospitality, air conditioning, refreshments, and fun combine for a perfect summer outing for the entire family,” shared Burnett.
Trinity Cathedral is located at 113 N 18th Street in downtown Omaha. Information is available at http://trinityepiscopal.org. The program is presented by Abendmusik in collaboration with Trinity Cathedral.
