Superstar baritone Nathan Gunn portrays the title role in Felix Mendelssohn’s dramatic and powerful oratorio Elijah, a story of powerful, warring personalities and miraculous events told through some of the most beautiful and sublime music of the 19th century. Sung in English. Carmen-Helena Tellez, conductor.
In partnership with Sacred Music at Notre Dame, the Presenting Series brings Felix Mendelssohn's choral masterpiece, Elijah to life. This epic oratorio depicts the life of the Old Testament prophet in choruses, arias and orchestra passages of great beauty. Impeccably scored and operatic in character, this moving work is widely considered to be the best oratorio of the 19th century. Join the center, Sacred Music at Notre Dame and Gunn—Notre Dame Department of Music’s newest Artist-in-Residence—for a truly unique performance experience.
Elijah approaches the story of the prophet Elijah as a trigger for studying religion as part of national, cultural and individual identity, including the case of Jewish artists that have contributed significantly to the Western world. Learn more.
Co-sponsored by Sacred Music at Notre Dame and College of Arts & Letters . This event is part of the project of Interdisciplinary Sacred Music Dramas at Notre Dame supported by a grant by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

TED Conference Live
Live Broadcast from Vancouver, BC
Tuesday, March 17, 2015, 6:00 PM
Free admission. Join your colleagues and friends (6-9pm) for a simulcast (on a large screen) of the annual TED Conference where TED Talks were created. Each year, the world's leading thinkers and doers gather for the TED conference, which many describe as the highlight of their year.
The theme for TED2015 is "Truth and Dare". Great TED Talks give you a new lens on the world as it is & they offer new possibilities for the world as it might be. TED2015 is on a quest to magnify both facets. We will seek to challenge and reshape our core beliefs about today's reality. And at the same time celebrate the thinkers, dreamers and mavericks who offer bold new alternatives. See TED.com for more info and Tuesday's speakers.
Notre Dame is one of the few universities in the world to offer this webcast, which will be transmitted live from Vancouver, BC. Don't miss this rare opportunity to participate virtually in a TED conference.
NOTE: The TED2015 conference webcast will be available only at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. This event is separate from the TEDxUND event held on Feb 27, 2015. TEDxLive is an extension of the TEDx program, launched by TED in 2010. TEDxLive events are TEDx events built around the live webcast of TED Conferences. TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience live sessions of the TED Conference. Some are simple viewing events, and some host live speakers.
