Summer Salon: Music of Felix Mendelssohn

July 13, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The BMC presents a series of Summer Salons exploring the magic and method behind master musical works. Led by longtime BMC faculty member Moby Pearson, the salons will be held Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. in the air-conditioned BMC. Pearson will share remarkable recordings of music from across the ages – and share new musical perspectives along the way!

July 13 – Music of Felix Mendelssohn
A prodigy early on, attendees will see how Mendelssohn’s timeline compared favorably with another wunderkind 50 years before him, Wolfgang Mozart. Because he was a converted Jew at the age of 7, Mendelssohn’s music was banned during the Nazi regime; and he also, like Mozart, died in his thirties. Regardless, what he left what can only be described as a full canon of heavenly and exhilarating music in every genre.

Other salons:
July 27 – Quatre Compositeurs Francais
August 10 – Mozart’s Arias for Aloysia

RSVP’s are encouraged and refreshments provided. Suggested donation is $25. For more information and to register for one or all salons, contact the BMC at 802-257-4523 or email info@bmcvt.org.
