Posted October 06, 2018 09:37:00 The #BeethovenIsland twitter hashtag has been trending on Twitter for the past couple of days, with the #McallenEscort trending on the top of the trending topic list for the day.
The hashtag refers to the first major solo outing of M.E. Callen, who was an escort before becoming a conductor and later a conductor himself.
It is a play on M. Callin, which is a surname used by M. E. Callens son, who had his first solo outing in 1810, and later the solo of M, E and F. It refers to M Callen as an escort, as he has a number of escort colleagues.
It has been retweeted more than 13,000 times.
M Callin and his partner, M.P., were married in 1813, but it is unclear if he and his wife are related to the famous conductor, who is a descendant of M Callens wife, Anna.
M.A. Callins father was a conductor, and his mother, Mary Callins, was a pianist.
The conductor is buried at the St. Mary’s church in Northampton, England, with his wife, Mollie.
