Truro Choral Society Present Mendelssohn: Elijah

Truro Choral’s singers are joined in the cathedral by outstanding soloists and many of Cornwall’s finest musicians in the Truro Symphony Orchestra.

“Elijah” is a great favourite with audiences and singers alike. It contains some of Mendelssohn’s greatest music with grand choruses and beautiful arias telling the prophet’s story in a series of dramatic episodes. The steadfast Elijah encounters the vengeful queen Jezebel amongst drought, rain, earthquake and fire – all portrayed by Mendelssohn’s fine writing!

Conrad Chatterton (Baritone) will be singing the part of Elijah. Conrad is an English Baritone currently studying for an Advanced Diploma (Opera) at the Royal Academy of Music (RAO) under the tutelage of Mark Wildman and Ingrid Surgenor. Prior to RAO, he graduated with Distinction in his Master of Music degree in Performance at RNCM under the tutelage of Matthew Best, as well as an M.A (Hons) Geography degree from the University of Aberdeen. Conrad made his operatic debut performing ‘Zuniga’ in Bizet's Carmen and has since performed roles including ‘Sir John Falstaff’ in Sir John in Love (BYO), ‘Edmund Bertram’ in Mansfield Park (RNCM), ‘Gianni Schicchi’ in Gianni Schicchi (Random Opera Company), ‘Gabriel von Eisenstein’ in Die Fledermaus (RNCM), ‘Der Haushofmeister’ & ‘Ein Lakai’ in Ariadne auf Naxos – Prologue (RNCM) and ‘Immigration Officer’ in Flight (RNCM) among others.
