About the Tuesday Musical Club

The Tuesday Musical Club, founded in 1901 by Anna Hertzberg, holds the distinction of being the oldest musical club for women in Texas.  

We are nestled inside historic Brackenridge Park, adjacent to the Japanese Tea Garden.  Our clubhouse, built in 1949, was designed by prominent architect Nathan Straus Nayfach.  The exterior of the building features the busts of Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, Mendelssohn, and Mozart. The Genius of Music, a bronze statue by Italian sculptor Pompeo Coppini, welcomes visitors to the Clubhouse.  

TMC is devoted to the study, promotion, and performance of classical music. In 1923, the ladies of TMC began sponsoring an annual concert known as a Musical Tea; this soon evolved into the Artist Series.  The Artist Series concluded with its centennial season, but our tradition of concerts and tea continues through our regular concert programs. 

We feature approximately 12 free programs each year during the October to May season.  These programs, which are always on Tuesdays, consist of an afternoon concert program or music-focused educational lecture, followed by tea and sandwiches. 

All of our concerts are held at the Clubhouse and are open to the public.  We invite you to join us and bring a friend! In addition, we are always happy to welcome new members to the Club. If you are a woman interested in membership, contact Rosemary Clark at rosemarypzc@gmail.com.
