This year marks the 200th anniversary of the births of two important figures in Western art and science: Felix Mendelssohn and Charles Darwin.

Saturday night at the Lensic Center in Santa Fe, a special event will look at the surprising parallels between the composer and the naturalist.

KUNM's Spencer Beckwith spoke with one of the organizers of the program.
