The choir's 120 members include men and women of all ages, races, creeds and occupations, united by their love of singing. In this concert at Rockefeller Chapel, Apollo performs a standard from their 144-year history: Felix Mendelssohn's dramatic oratorio Elijah, a musical retelling of the life of the Biblical prophet. The Apollo Chorus is joined by the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra and featured soloist Gerard Sundberg in the title role.
This show’s running time is approximately two hours and 15 minutes, including a brief intermission.
