Yesterday, I sat in on the rehearsal for our Mendelssohn concert and was totally blown away by how beautiful, Romantic, and sophisticated the music was. Even though it has been a hectic week, I immediately felt my blood pressure lower.
You, too can experience this feeling without going to yoga or therapy. If you are hearty, as most New Yorkers are, put on your rain boots and come down to the Museum tonight. There are still some tickets left. If you are cynical, again as most New Yorkers are, don't take my word for it. WQXR had a live performance on the air of excerpts of tonight's concert along with an interview with The Mendelssohn Project's artistic director, Stephen Somary. You can listen to it here. Trust me, you will be so glad you did.
