Evanston Music Club

 

 

Founded in 1906

 

 

As it was at the founding of the club in 1906, it is still the hope of the Evanston Music Club that we help, through music, the universal language, to make the world a better place for all.

 
 

WELCOME

 

The Evanston Music Club meets September - May in members’ homes and other venues. Prospective members are encouraged to inquire about events.

Objectives of the club are:

  • To stimulate and encourage study and performance of  music from all musical periods  among our members
  • To encourage study and promote musical performance among young persons
  • To award one or more scholarships to  young music students each year.

For many years, the club has given scholarships to worthy and talented music students. These protégés have always justified the club’s interest in them.  Many of the recipients have gone on to brilliant careers, including affiliations with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera, Chicago,  Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Cleveland Orchestra,  San Francisco  Symphony, Ars Viva Symphony Orchestra and the Pilgrim Chamber Players.   

 

Scholarship recipients have included performers on piano, cello, violin, viola, flute, oboe, harp, clarinet, saxophone, double bass, trombone, harp, marimba and vocalists in all ranges.
