The Bach Choir closes out its 82nd concert season this weekend with Mendelssohn's dramatic Elijah!

This production features baritone Keith Dean as Elijah. Keith is a featured soloist with the American Spiritual Ensemble, and has performed with opera companies around the world in such roles as Rigoletto, Blitch in Susanna, Don Alfonso in Cosi fan tutte, Germont in La Traviata, Pa Moss in The Tenderland, Crown & Jake in Porgy and Bess, and Muhammad Ali in Muhammad Ali, Beyond The Ring.

Composed in the spirit of his Baroque predecessors Bach and Handel, Mendelssohn's choral masterpiece recounts the story of the Old Testament prophet with colorful intensity.

Performances will be held Saturday, April 22 @ 8pm and Sunday, April 23 @ 4pm at St. Agnes Center, Carlow University (3235 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213).
