Because what is life without music.

Thank you for your generous support of Schubert Club! Individual gifts are the backbone of our organization, and your unrestricted contribution of any amount allows us the flexibility to do our work effectively. If you wish, you can designate your gift to a concert series or program by writing it in the Dedication section on the donate page. Your fully tax-deductible gift supports our International Artist Series, Julie Himmelstrup Music in the Park Series, Courtroom Concerts, Schubert Club Mix, Accordo and other collaborative concerts, museum programs and educational opportunities for students of all ages.

Mission: Schubert Club cultivates a passion for music and fosters an engaged community of music enthusiasts through concerts, music education, museum exhibits, and student scholarships.

Founded 141 years ago, Schubert Club is 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, and with this strategic plan, looks forward to imagining new ways to animate its home communities through music.

Schubert Club presented its first public recital in 1893. Since then the International Artist Series at the Ordway Center has included virtually all of the world’s great recitalists, Jascha Heifetz, Arthur Rubinstein, Cecilia Bartoli, Isaac Stern, Beverly Sills, Yo-Yo Ma and Renee Fleming among them. Schubert Club also presents several other series: Schubert Club Mix is a convention-breaking performance series in non-traditional venues around the Twin Cities, Julie Himmelstrup Music in the Park Series presents chamber music in its many and and varied forms in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood, free weekly lunchtime Courtroom Concerts take place at the Landmark Center in downtown St. Paul and Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis, 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 three thousand youth annually through varied activities such as family concerts, teacher and student workshops, free Project CHEER piano and guitar lessons, KidsJam workshops in neighborhood locations, and a scholarship competition that allow young students to pursue their music studies more intensively.

The recently renovated Schubert Club Music Museum, located in historic Landmark Center, holds two exciting new interactive galleries - the Music Makers Zone, where visitors can explore, discover and create music with instruments from around the globe, and Keyboard Journey Gallery, an immersive focus on the sights and sounds of Schubert Club's keyboard collection - from a 16th century spinet to iconic 20th century electro-mechanical keyboard instruments like the Fender Rhodes piano and the Hammond organ.  Composer letters from the Gilman Ordway Manuscript Collection are also on display together with a selection of historical music players that brought music into the home.

Schubert Club maintains a commitment to afford ticket prices for all concert presentations, as well as cost-free education programs and museum entrance, thanks to endowment gifts and annual donations.

Schubert Club is one of four founding members of the Arts Partnership, programming a vibrant future for the performing arts in downtown St. Paul together with the Ordway, Minnesota Opera and The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.

We are extremely proud of our history of fiscal responsibility, having ended every year since inception with a balanced budget. The Schubert Club Endowment helps supplement our annual fund, ensuring our ability to share the finest musical arts. The Schubert Club welcomes planned gifts, ensuring that we can provide music forever. But, we depend on generous people like you, who provide the majority of the funding needed through annual giving to make our programming possible.
