Schubert Festival

Austrian composer Franz Peter Schubert (1797-1828) lived a brief but musically prolific life. His compositions continue to be among the most admired and performed in the world. The Schubert Festival, a time-honored tradition designed to celebrate his music, is planned on a biennial basis in the newly restored Unity Temple, recently named a UNESCO world heritage site.

World renowned concert artists perform recitals showcasing the works of Franz Schubert and other composers. The multi-recital festival format features the timeless splendor of this composer’s works through song recitals and chamber works. An Authentic Austrian dinner is also available preceding the evening concert.
