Musical talent often runs in families, and one of history’s most talented set of siblings were the Mendelssohns—Felix and Fanny. Connected by their extraordinary gifts and love for music, they developed a close relationship that endured throughout their lives. Join VocalEssence singers, soprano Maria Jette, and an honor choir comprised of area high school singers as they present Felix and Fanny’s marvelous musical creations.
