DELMAR, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Mendelssohn Club of Albany will perform its traditional spring concert on Friday, May 13. The theme for the evening is “A Night of Romance,” which will begin at 7:30 p.m., in the historic Chancellor’s Hall in the New York State Education Building. 

The concert will feature a wide range of music from the Renaissance to Rock eras and everything in between. In keeping with tradition, the club will introduce Albany’s new Tulip Queen and her court at intermission.

Additionally, the Williams College Octet will join the club as a special guest to help celebrate the arrival of spring. The all-male a cappella group was founded in 1940, making it one of the oldest collegiate a cappella groups in the country.
