The first-ever all-Mendelssohn panel at the American Musicological Society was a wonderful success! The presentations were beautifully done (including live singing, always a real treat), and the discussion was vibrant. Thank you, presenters AND attendees, for a truly memorable experience. It was an honor to organize and chair!
