Tickets:  $25 for adults, $20 for senior citizens and $15 for students over 14

Children ages 14 and under are admitted free 

Chorus, soloists, and orchestra co-directed by William B. Richter and Elizabeth Chapman Reilly

George Frideric Handel, one of the great composers of the Baroque period, composed “Israel in Egypt” in 1738. After his “Messiah,” it is considered his most popular oratorio. With his extraordinary penchant for storytelling, Handel unfolds “Israel in Egypt” as the heroic, biblical story of Moses leading the Israelites as they escaped from captivity in Egypt. With dramatic artistry, Handel depicts the ten plagues visited upon the Egyptians and the crossing of the Red Sea. Notable for its use of its thunderous choruses, the work also includes several arias, performed in these concerts by PFC singer soloists.

Tickets for “Israel in Egypt” are $25 for adults, $20 for senior citizens, and $15 for students over 14. Children ages 14 and under are admitted for free. Tickets may be purchased in advance at pilgrimfestivalchorus.org, or from PFC members. Tickets are also available at the door, limited to venue capacity.
