About Schubert Club

For over 130 years, Schubert Club has invited the world’s finest recital soloists and ensembles to the Twin Cities and promoted the finest musical talents of our community through performances, education, and museum programs. It has secured a prominent and distinguished reputation among musical organizations nationwide, and is one of the first arts organizations in the country.

The Schubert Club’s International Artist Series has presented virtually all of the world’s great recitalists including Jascha Heifetz, Arthur Rubinstein, Cecilia Bartoli, Isaac Stern, Beverly Sills, Yo-Yo Ma and Renée Fleming to name a few. In 2014, Schubert Club introduced Schubert Club Mix, its convention-breaking performance series in nontraditional venues. Additional series include Music in the Park Series (chamber music concerts in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood), a free weekly lunchtime Courtroom Concerts series in downtown St. Paul, Accordo, and the Hill House Chamber Players.

The Schubert Club has a strong commitment to music education and reaches hundreds of kids annually through family-friendly concerts, workshops, music lessons and scholarships.

The Schubert Club Museum located in historic Landmark Center holds a world-class collection comprised of historic keyboards, instruments from around the world and original letters and manuscripts of famous composers.

The Museum and administrative offices are located in the historic Landmark Center in downtown Saint Paul. The building is located on the north end of Saint Paul’s Rice Park that also includes the Saint Paul Hotel, Saint Paul Public Library, and Ordway Center for the Performing Arts.

The Schubert Club is also a member of the Arts Partnership along with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, The Minnesota Opera and Ordway Center.

The Schubert Club’s activities are generously supported in part by the generosity of our individual donors, foundations and corporations, and grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the Saint Paul Cultural STAR Program, and Target®.
