Handel's "Israel in Egypt
"Israel in Egypt", the drama of the exciting story of the Hebrew escape from Egypt, is enhanced by frequent use of double choruses in painting the fright of various plagues as well as in fervent songs of victory and of praise for the glorious trimph of their Lord.
Congregation B’nai Shalom at 117 East Main Street in Westborough will be the site of the Assabet Valley Mastersingers concert with orchestra on Saturday, November 10th, 2018 at 8 pm. AVM’s Artistic Director Robert P. Eaton will conduct the ensemble in presenting George Frideric Handel’s grand oratorio Israel in Egypt.
The drama of the exciting story of the Hebrew escape from slavery in Egypt is enhanced by frequent use of double choruses in painting the fright of various plagues of hail, gnats, flies, and locusts, as well as in fervent songs of victory and of praise for the glorious triumph of their Lord. The professionally trained voices of soloists Catherine Hedberg, mezzo soprano, and tenor Matthew Anderson, accompanied by full orchestra, will further heighten the vivid beauty of Handel’s masterwork.
