I get to go to the symphony to hear a performance of the oratorio Elijah by Felix Mendehlsson. For those of you who say "ora-who-io?", an oratorio is like an opera or a musical plus a choir minus staging. From what I read, Elijah is probably the second most popular of the genre, with Handel's Messiah coming in first.

*Commence own horn tooting*
I wrote an oratorio for my senior recital in college.
*End transmission of own horn tooting*

I'm fairly excited because it's always nice to be able to hear some well crafted and well played music. I hope that I'm not disappointed.
