The Tuesday Musical Club was founded in 1901 by five women with the vision of studying, performing and promoting fine music to the San Antonio community. Today, it continues to flourish; its exclusively female membership includes some of San Antonio’s best musicians, teachers and classical aficionados, all who keep up with the international music scene.
In 1903, the club produced an annual series of concerts called Musical Teas in 1923. Those teas have evolved—without interruption—into the club’s Artist Series concerts featuring leading performing classical musicians, many of them appearing for the first time in San Antonio. During the past 96 seasons, pre-eminent artists such as Leonard Rose, Josef and Rosina Lhévinne, Angelika Kirchschlager, Arcadi Volodos, Chanticleer, Joshua Bell, Nathan Gunn, Stephen Hough and Lawrence Brownlee have performed. The 2019-2020 season kicks off on October 8 with the Hermès Quartet. Students are free with proper school ID.
Anyone interested in music as a fine art is invited to attend the club’s Artist Series; the Junior Tuesday Musical Club Competition on Saturday, February 22, 2020; and the Young Artists Competition on March 7, 2020.
The public is welcome at TMC’s free, semi-monthly two-hour meetings/musical performances by members who volunteer their expertise, followed by a tea. These entertaining, educational performances occur in the TMC Clubhouse and are listed on the About Us page. No RSVP is required.
New members are welcome. If interested in membership in TMC, please contact Pepper Huston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 1923, the Artist Series of the Tuesday Musical Club has featured concerts by premier world-class artists, including Isaac Stern, Leonard Rose, Josef and Rosina Lhevinne, Angelika Kirchschlager, Chanticleer, Joshua Bell, Nathan Gunn, Stephen Hough and Lawrence Brownlee.
Junior Tuesday Musical Club gives young people in grades 1 - 12 an appreciation of the beauty of music in a fun environment that also promotes friendships. With an emphasis on the masters, it also offers an opportunity to perform at a monthly club meeting, and also competitively at the annual competition in February.
