A Review of Handel’s Dixit Dominus

The Elgin Master Chorale, conducted by Music Director Andrew Lewis, concluded its 72nd season with a performance of "Dixit Dominus" composed by a twenty-something G.F. Handel, on Sunday, April 14 at 3:30 p.m. in the Blizzard Theatre at Elgin Community College.

From the Elgin Review:

"Year after year, EMC Music Director Andrew Lewis gathers and develops an astonishing amount of talent to take on serious music by important composers in a professionalistic way. These concerts are a rare privilege to experience, and equally amazing is the opportunity to participate in this music making as a singer, board member or volunteer."
