Tom and Huck at the Opera
We’re all familiar with Mark Twain and his two boys, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and of course know that his real name was Samuel Clemens.
A musical connection? Clemens had a daughter, Clara, who was a concert singer.
She married twice: to the conductor of the Detroit Symphony, and second, to the conductor of the Washington National Opera.
Don’t know if Tom or Huck even liked classical music...
