Oregon Repertory Singers concludes our 44th season with Handel’s Israel in Egypt, a seldom performed oratorio that rivals Handel’s well-known Messiah in majesty and import. Orchestra, soloists, and double choir join in this powerful retelling of the Passover story from the Old Testament of the Bible. Israel in Egypt takes audiences on a profound musical and emotional journey, following the Israelites on their difficult path from suffering to salvation. Handel’s inimitable style and exceptional talent for storytelling are on full display in this rare performance of one of his greatest choral-orchestral masterpieces.
We are proud to be a partner in the Oregon Symphony’s Sounds of Home initiative, using music and art to reflect on critical issues facing our community including homelessness, the environment, and immigration. ORS offers this concert as a reflection on the great lengths to which a group of people may go in search of home.
This concert is made possible in part by a generous anonymous sponsor.
