Tour of The Schubert Club Museum and Song Recital

March 22, 2020
2:00pm - 4:00pm
The Schubert Club, Landmark Center Room 205, 75 W 5th St, Saint Paul
$10

Celebrate early spring with a tour and reception at The Schubert Club Museum, a presentation by Barry Kempton, Artistic & Executive Director, and a brief song recital. A collaboration of the UChicago and Harvard clubs.

Located on the second floor of the iconic Saint Paul’s Landmark Center, The Schubert Club Museum offers visitors a reflection on music-making through the centuries. From a massive “cyclone” sculpture of instruments, through the gallery of historic keyboards, to the impressive collection of correspondence from famous composers, music boxes, and phonographs, the Museum opens a window on the inspiring role of music in people’s lives.

The Schubert Club fosters an engaged community of music enthusiasts through concerts, music education, composer residences, museum exhibits, and student scholarships.  This winter, concerts feature violinist Susie Park, pianist Daniil Trifonov, the Sphinx Virtuosi, Border CrosSing, and new works by Michael Maiorana.

Barry Kempton was appointed Artistic & Executive Director of the Schubert Club following 25 years in music administration in Edinburgh, London, and St. Paul.  Educated in Southampton and Bristol, England, he played piano and trombone from an early age and was a brass semi-finalist in the prestigious BBC Young Musician of the Year competition.  He held several administrative positions at the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in Edinburgh, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the City of London Sinfonia. Barry moved back to Saint Paul to lead the Schubert Club, Minnesota’s oldest arts organization, in January 2012.

We will be joined by soprano Natalia Romero Arbeláez and pianist Jared Miller, who will present a brief selection of songs featured in Border CrosSing's 2019-2020 season.

Event Details

  • 2:00 pm Informal reception in the Thelma Hunter Recital Room (Room 205 on the second floor)
  • 2:15 pm Guided tour begins and will last approximately 30 to 40 minutes
  • 3:00 pm Presentation by Barry Kempton and sampler recital
  • 3:20 pm Second tour begins
  • 4:00 pm Museum closes

Guests can visit the museum on their own during the reception or join us for the guided tour.

Georgetown Professor Julia Lamm on "All Shall Be Well": Julian of Norwich on Hope, Mercy, and Compassion in Turbulent Times

April 17, 2020
6:30pm - 8:00pm
TBD
N/A

Join us and Professor Julia Lamm in a brief lecture and discussion on God's Kinde Love and Julian Norwich, an English anchorite from the Middle Ages. She was known as a spirtual authority within her community, devoting herself to a life of prayer to complement the clergy in their primary function as protectors of people's souls. She wrote Revelations of Devine love on Christian mystical devotions. The book is the earliest surviving example of a book in the English language to have been written by a woman.

Become a TCAN Member

Interested alumni organizations must meet each of the requirements listed below to qualify for membership in TCAN. All new applications are reviewed by the TCAN membership board. To learn more about our association or to request affiliation, please contact us.

New to the area? We invite interested alumni to contact their local affiliated clubs for membership and to receive upcoming TCAN event notifications. You're also invited to join our TCAN LinkedIn Group.

01/04

Nationally Ranked

We believe that the overall ranking number is a sufficient surrogate for a measure of quality. Therefore the college or university must have been nationally ranked as a top‐50 college or university, according to U.S. News and World Report, within each of the last three years.

02/04

Located Outside of Minnesota

TCAN was founded as a support group for university alumni organizations from colleges located primarily outside the Midwest. A geographical eligibility criterion ensures that alumni groups with a significant membership base will not dominate TCAN events.

03/04

Undergrad Population of Less than 10,000

We believe that the size of a college's undergraduate program offers a surrogate measure of not only the quality of the school, but also the type of cultural experience that embodies a program of liberal arts education and instills a love of learning.

04/04

Alumni Org. must be a Bona Fide Club

We feel it is important that all member clubs are sanctioned, well‐established, and able to contribute to the Network upon admission. Therefore all organizations seeking membership must typically have at least 10 members and 2 years of operating history.
