We ❤️ Fanny #Repost @995wcrb with @get_repost
Happy birthday, Fanny Mendelssohn! Fanny fought against the disapproval of her family (and society at large) and composed over 500 pieces of music. She even had to write her own wedding music -- the NIGHT BEFORE her wedding -- because her brother Felix dropped the ball. As if that wasn't enough, she also nursed her family through cholera, and wrote a Cholera Cantata afterwards. Today we remember Fanny for her enterprising spirit, her love of music, and her boundless talent. Three cheers! #musichistory #herstory #femalecomposer #onthisday #otd
Next Sunday, November 18! Craft Trio with guest, cellist @kkayaian. Music by Haydn, Caroline Shaw, Missy Mazzoli and more
We had a great time on the Homespun Livestream Monday night. Many thanks to Dave & Vanessa for starting this wonderful project. @jamadave @animaflute
