Happy Holidays from the Schubert Club staff!

By Barry Kempton

Today’s post is a short blog wishing you all a very Happy Holidays from all of us in the Schubert Club staff. 

Our small but mighty staff team produces some 60 concerts annually, runs a museum, administers a scholarship competition and several other music education programs, not to mention the associated marketing, box office, fundraising and accounting functions that organizations of our kind count on every single day.  I am grateful for my colleagues and how they go about their work from day to day with commitment to Schubert Club and respect for their fellow team members.

By the way, there’s one more program we’re looking forward to in our December Celebration of the Human Voice which has featured so far:

  • vocal ensemble Calmus in the Music in the Park Series
  • Schubert song recitals by Eric Owens and Clara Osowski
  • Clarice Assad with father Sergio in Schubert Club Mix
  • and David Evan Thomas’s set of songs “Joy” for vocal quartet and piano four-hands

On Thursday (December 21), the annual Songs of the Season program featuring carols by Minnesota composers and curated by popular Courtroom Concerts host Abbie Betinis will have two performances:

Thursday at noon, Landmark Center (downtown St Paul), Courtroom 317:  Courtroom Concert series

Thursday at 5:00pm, Dunsmore Room of Crooners Lounge and Supper Club, 6161 Highway 65 NE, Fridley, MN 55432

Both performances are free.  We hope to see you there, at noon or 5:00, to wish you the very best for the festive season.

If not on Thursday, we will see you in the New Year!
