Performance Friday, May 12, 2017 | 8 PM

American Symphony Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
One of England’s greatest composers wrote a rarely-heard setting of the New Testament. Elgar’s The Apostles follows the story of the twelve apostles through the Resurrection. On par with his previous choral work, The Dream of Gerontius, this oratorio is at once sublime and heartbreakingly human.
