About Us

One of this country’s oldest choruses, Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia performs choral music to create a shared transcendent experience among its singers and audiences. Through the excellence of its adventurous performances, Mendelssohn Club advances the development of choral music as an art form.

CORE VALUES Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia believes in:

  • Taking artistic risks that stretch and challenge our singers and our audiences.
  • Supporting the talent, passion, and dedication of our singers, and the powerful communal experience that comes from shared music making.
  • Respecting the commitment and appreciation of our audience members.
  • Ensuring Mendelssohn Club’s long-term stability as an important cultural resource in our region and as an influence in the world of choral music.

At one time, even Beethoven was considered to be avant garde. Imagine Salieri’s reaction upon hearing Beethoven’s 7th Symphony after being riveted by Mozart’s prolificity. The importance of new ideas, fresh interpretations of traditional forms, is not only prevalent in music, but in all aspects of life. Whether it’s an original perspective in economic theory or a different way to heal patients, ideas of all sorts push us to consider novel solutions. In looking forward, we invent ways to analyze and to consider the past.
