Additional Details

Founded at The New School in 1957 as New School Concerts, this series was renamed the Schneider Concerts in 1993 in honor of founding artistic director Alexander Schneider.

Its mission is to provide exposure for outstanding emerging professional chamber artists and to present high-quality chamber music performances at modest ticket prices to ensure access for all New Yorkers.
