First Thursdays in the Schubert Club Museum
Schubert Club is pleased to announce special late hours in the Museum on the First Thursday of each month from 4-8 pm. This will be a great opportunity for the community to experience our engaging collection of historical music and replicas, original autographed letters from notable composers and other music-themed exhibits of historic and cultural interest outside of the regular daytime hours.
Free to the public, visitors can enjoy guided tours, live demonstrations, fun interactive music-making, trivia contests with opportunities to win tickets for Schubert Club performances and complimentary wine (for guests 21+) and refreshments.
Each month Schubert Club will host a special guest(s) to demonstrate and explore the many treasures in the museum. Peek inside our historical keyboards and observe our experts as they take them apart and demonstrate all the fascinating mechanisms and how they work. Imagine being back in 1790 and sense the emotions behind an original love letter from Mozart. Or step back in time to experience the over 1000-year communal musical tradition of Balinese Gamelan.
Stop by every month for a new experience. If your daytime plans don’t allow you to visit the Schubert Club Museum, this is an awesome way to spend an evening learning, exploring, and socializing with others.
First Thursday Schedule of Activities for June
The Schubert Club Museum will stay open late for First Thursday!
Join us for wine, appetizers, and music by International Novelty Gamelan, a group of Minnesotans smitten with the sounds of the Javanese gamelan orchestra! This group pushes beyond the classic traditions to play western music of their own devising. Their musical influences include pop and improv, informed by customary gamelan techniques and structures, with the occasional addition of trumpet, violin, and dumbek. There is even an opportunity for the audience to join in!
Enjoy the music, and then take a tour of the museum with one of our knowledgeable tour guides! Experience for the first time, or take closer look at our brand new temporary exhibit “Nordic Strings and Bows”, featuring instruments from Norway, Finland, and Sweden. Have you ever played a nyckelharpa or psalmodikon? Stop by to give these unique instruments a try!
