Mendelssohn’s Elijah: A Fiery Musical Feast!

Following our spectacular 2014 performance of Verdi’s Requiem, we are delighted to return to Fairfield Halls on March the 19th with The Derbyshire Singers and The Forest Philharmonic Orchestra to perform Mendelssohn’s magnificent Elijah.

This colourful work takes us on a musical journey: the drought-stricken people’s plea for help, Jehovah and Baal’s fierce battle, a fiery sacrifice, rain drenching the parched earth and the prophet’s ascent to Heaven in a blazing chariot.

Mendelssohn’s music is both highly dramatic and richly lyrical – a feast indeed!

Back in December, LCS were very happy to sing Christmas carols in support of two London based charities – St Joseph’s Hospice and St Mungo’s.

We are proud to say we helped collect the following sums:

* Trafalgar Square, £404.65 for St Joseph’s Hospice.
* Waterloo station, £481.90 for St Mungo’s.
* Christmas concert retiring collection, £345 for St Mungo’s.

Good luck to both charities for 2016, hopefully you will collect even more this Christmas!
