New Season, Big Performers At The Tuesday Musical Club

You may have never heard of San Antonio’s Tuesday Musical Club, but now that they’re in their 91st season,  maybe it's time you did.

Board Member Claudia Robison talks about the curious way the club came about.

"It was founded by Anna Hertzberg, who had moved here from Manhattan, from New York City. She found that there was really no culture; it was really a cowpoke town," Robison said.

Late 1800's San Antonio wasn’t a cultural mecca, so Anna Hertzberg founded the Tuesday Musical Club to expand the city’s cultural horizons. For the last 90 years they’ve been bringing live music performances to the Alamo City. The new season begins next week.

"Our first concert will be October 8, and we do all of those concerts in Monte Vista, at Laurel Heights Methodist Church," Robison said.

That first concert features violinist Bella Hristova.

"Bella’s coming back," Robison said. "She’s a very exciting performer."

She’s first in a series of four concerts, all happening Tuesday afternoons, all four concerts available for a total price of $75. Students with a valid ID are free.
