This Sunday, May 20, at 5:00 P.M., Grace Church (254 Hicks Street at Grace Court) will present Felix Mendelssohn's oratorio Elijah, performed by the Grace Church Choir under the direction of Paul Olson. The title part will be sung by bass Don Yule, a member of the New York City Opera company, whose many roles there have included being (appropriately) one of the "Dons" in Leonard Bernstein's Candide. Also appearing as a soloist will be the accomplished soprano Heidi Sauser. Accompanying the choir will be organist Robert Poovey, formerly Music Director of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Atlanta and now Project Director for the renowned pipe organ makers Casavant Freres of St-Hyacinthe, Quebec.
All are invited to this free performance, and to the reception afterwards in the Church's Guild Hall.
