"After 18 months outside the concert hall, piano lovers enthusiastically snatched up almost every available ticket, with the hall only half full due to COVID restrictions. And the crowd got a strong sense of what a marvelous musician Ozel is, one with disarming confidence in his interpretations and a gift for smooth and engaging mood shifts. "

Yesterday's concert by Evren Ozel , co-presented with the Frederic Chopin Society, was our first performance at the Ordway with a live audience since March 2020. We couldn't think of a better way to open our season! Read the rest of Rob Hubbard's review in the Star Tribune at the link below.

We're absolutely loving this latest episode of San Francisco Opera's docuseries "In Song", a beautiful profile of 2021 International Artist Series artist Jamie Barton. Watch at the link below:

Music was her upbringing. Then it was her escape. And ultimately, it would be the thing to bring her home once more, to the sounds of faith, family and bluegrass.

Now available to stream, "In Song: Jamie Barton" is an intimate look into the life of an opera singer — a talent forged through the blend of folk and classical music.

Let mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton take you home to "The Pocket," a valley in north Georgia where families bonded over bluegrass beats and church harmonies. Helping her reconnect with her roots is 15-time Grammy winner Béla Fleck, a banjo virtuoso and one of Jamie's musical heroes.

Catch up with "In Song" today — and explore the horizon where genres blend and inspiration begins: sfopera.com/insong

TRILLOQUY | Opus 103 - Verisimilitude

Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19th, marks the anniversary of the day in 1865 when news of the emancipation reached Galveston, TX, nearly two months after the end of the civil war. In 2021, Juneteenth was made a federal holiday.

This weekend, we're listening to the latest episode of Trilloquy with Scott Blankenship and Garrett McQueen, host of next week's Museum Mini. The two hosts discuss the continued struggle for equity in the arts, and interview violinist Rachel Barton-Pine about her work supporting and promoting black composers.

As Juneteenth becomes a more wide-spread celebration, musicians and content creators of all types are jumping in to honor the holiday. Garrett goes into why he chose not to offer anything this year in an emotional final movement. Scott shines a light on the continued struggle for equity across the p...

"Thursday evening proved a fine showcase for the [Schubert's] skill in crafting chamber works, while also giving a taste of what a brilliant songwriter he was. But the thrill of this concert was not only in the expert performances by the six musicians, but in the joy of 125 music lovers celebrating a mutual affection."

Thank you to Rob Hubbard and the Star Tribune for a wonderful writeup of Thursday's concert by David Finckel and Wu Han and friends - ducks, birds, and all. We'll be back tonight for the second of five Schubert Revealed concerts at the Minnesota State Fair!

Our Story

Founded over 135 years ago, Schubert Club is today one of the nation’s most vibrant music organizations, enriching Minnesota with dynamic concerts, music education programs and museum exhibits. Schubert Club remains as relevant, respected, and resilient today as it has throughout its history.

Schubert Club presented its first public recital in 1893. Since then the ​International Artist Series​ has included virtually all of the world’s great recitalists, Jascha Heifetz, Arthur Rubinstein, Cecilia Bartoli, Isaac Stern, Beverly Sills, Yo-Yo Ma and Renée Fleming among them. In 2014, Schubert Club introduced ​Schubert Club Mix​, its convention-breaking performance series in non-traditional venues. Schubert Club also presents ​Music in the Park​ Series (chamber music concerts in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood), free weekly lunchtime ​Courtroom Concerts​in downtown St. Paul, chamber ensemble ​Accordo in Minneapolis venues, and the ​Hill House Chamber Players​ at the historic James J. Hill House.

Not only a concert presenter, Schubert Club has engaged in music education programs since 1911. Schubert Club currently reaches two thousand youth annually through varied activities such as family concerts, teacher and student workshops, free music lessons in neighborhood locations, and scholarships that allow young students to pursue their music studies more intensively.

In addition, the ​Schubert Club Museum​, located in downtown Saint Paul’s historic Landmark Center, holds a world-class collection of historic keyboards, original letters and manuscripts of famous composers, and musical instruments from around the world. These are displayed and available for free public viewing, enhanced with interpretive information and frequent tours and special programs.
