PRESS RELEASE No. 2: Two Composers' 100th Birthdays Celebrated in One Concert. Click here to read the press release.
We pay tribute to the late Philadelphia composer Robert Elmore and celebrate his 100th birthday by presenting The Cross, featuring Grant Youngblood in the role of Christ. Under the direction of David Christopher, DVC will be joined by organist and Elmore protégé Robert Plimpton of San Diego, CA. This monumental work has seldom been performed because of its level of difficulty and the choral resources required. Featured on the second half of the program will be two of the conductor's favorite works by Benjamin Britten, Rejoice in the Lamb and Festival Te Deum.

Handel's Judas Maccabeus
This epic work was one of Handel's most popular compositions in his day. It is the story of one of the great warriors of Jewish history and the restoration of Jewish worship at the temple in Jerusalem during the second century B.C. Recounting the story of Hanukkah, it contains numerous familiar pieces, such as "See the Conquering Heroes". "O Lovely Peace", and "Hallelujah, Amen!". Soloists included Gus Mercante, Jeffrey Manns, Melanie Sarakatsannis, Alex Helsabeck, and David Lockart in the title role. Kimberly Doucette was the guest conductor while David Christopher accompanied on organ. The Wilmington Children's Chorus made a special appearance.
