The Columbus Indiana Philharmonic will be presenting a Bible-inspired performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s “Elijah” on Saturday evening at Columbus North High School’s Erne Auditorium.
The philharmonic’s conductor and musical director David Bowden says that the show will feature world renowned bass baritone Timothy Noble. Noble may be best known locally as the singer of the National Anthem at IU basketball games.
The show will also feature a young, local performer, Ally Parker. She performs with the Columbus Indiana Children’s Choir.
Other featured performers include Rachel J. Holland, Hannah Penn and Justin Stolz.
The performance tells the story of Elijah from 2 Kings including his confrontation with the priests of Baal and flight from Queen Jezebel. Bowden talks about what makes the arrangement so powerful.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the high school. It will be preceded by a Musically Speaking session with Bowden at 6:45 p.m..
Tickets are available for the show at the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic offices on Franklin Street or you can go online to thecip.org.
