Male choir part of Capital Region’s fabric since early 1900s

The Capital Region has a rich history when it comes to music. One group has served as a cornerstone of entertainment since the early 1900s.

It’s called The Mendelssohn Club and your next chance to see the choir perform is May 19 for a spring concert at Chancellor Hall in the State Education Building.

Some folks have been with this group for almost 50 years and some of them for multiple generations. Their fathers sang with the group, now they sing with the group.

These men also network, socialize and support one another.

They come from all walks of life, different parts of the area and all have different political backgrounds.

Learn more about how the club started — and how it’s lasted more than 110 years by watching the video of Chris Onorato’s story.
