Worcester Schubertiade

Intimate Classical, the Voices of Worcester

What is a Schubertiade?

During Schubert's lifetime, it was an intimate gathering of friends in a private home which featured Schubert's music, poetry readings, dance and other sociable pastimes.

 

Today, Worcester Schubertiade is Intimate Classical, The Voices of Worcester

Vision: To cultivate a supply of, access to, and demand for the arts in Central Massachusetts.
