CONCERT REVIEW: Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah – Todmorden Town Hall – 23rd April 2022


This work tells the dramatic story of the prophet Elijah. It was performed by Todmorden Choral Society and Todmorden Orchestra, conducted by Antony Brannick. The soloists were Hugo Herman-Wilson, who gave an expressive and beautiful performance as Elijah, Eleanor Sanderson-Nash, Sophie Dicks, and Adam Magee, along with some soloists from the Choral Society itself.

The choir, orchestra and soloists gave a brilliant performance of a long and demanding work, in which dramatic and peaceful music both featured.
