Mendelssohn Information

As dictated on the Mendelssohn document, each week in March we ask you watch or listen to a specific work of his.  The month will end in a field trip to see his violin concerto performed by the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster Naha Greenholtz on April 7th at Overture Hall.
Extra information and musical listening of his can be heard March 4th through the 7th on 98.7WTFM as Bill McGlaughln’s Exploring Music will be featuring the composer as well!

Starting off the month is his famous A Midsummer Night’s Dream Scherzo which can be watched below. Happy listening!
