Musicians from the Boston University College of Fine Arts returned to Boston's historic Symphony Hall to perform Mendelssohn's masterpiece Elijah. The concert features the BU Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Chorus, conductor Ann Howard Jones, soprano Liz Baldwin, mezzo-soprano Penelope Bitzas, tenor Martin Bakari, baritone James Demler, and soprano Kira Winter singing the role of The Youth.

Felix Mendelssohn's Elijah, perhaps his most endearing and embracing work, is a vivid depiction of the prophet's dramatic life, expressed through thrilling musical story telling, brilliant arias, and grand and vibrant choruses. The featured soloists in this epic work include students and faculty from the BU School of Music, where Jones is a Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities.

Hosted by College of Fine Arts on April 11, 2011.
