May 11: Pro Musica presents Handel’s “Israel in Egypt”
3:00 PM, Richardson Auditorium, Princeton, NJ
The PPM Chorus and Orchestra close the season in grand Baroque style with a performance of Handel’s colossal oratorio Israel in Egypt (1736), with double chorus, soloists , and Baroque orchestra. “Israel in Egypt” has endeared itself to skilled choirs with its use of vivid tone-painting and dynamic rhythms to evoke the plagues and other details, from jumping frogs to whirring flies, pounding hail and swelling waves. Rounding out the program is Handel’s “Concerto Grosso in G Major” for orchestra and instrumental soloists.
