Salastina Society. Sounds Genius: Mendelssohn Octet

Winifred Smith Hall
What was the premiere of the 16-year-old composer's work like? How did Mendelssohn combine two string quartets to such great effect? Why do we feel such elation when listening? The nationally renowned Salastina Society, including UCI’s Sarah Koo, explores these topics, with examples, before a complete performance of the work.
Support for this exhibtion is provided by UCI Illuminations.
