A Message from Indianapolis Symphonic Choir: In light of the continuing concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra has made the difficult decision to cancel Elijah on March 27. Following the CDC’s guideline to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people for the next eight weeks, our activity is on hiatus.


Mendelssohn: Elijah

an Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra production

It’s been nearly 30 years since the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra—with Conductor Laureate Maestro Raymond Leppard—last performed Elijah, Mendelssohn’s glorious, sacred oratorio. Under the talented direction of Jun Märkl, four incredible soloists and the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir bring the Old Testament story of the prophet Elijah to life. This work alone cemented Mendelssohn’s place in history as one of the greatest composers of sacred music.
