Call for Schubertiad

Dear musicians/artists/performers,
We invite you to a Schubertiad at Spoke.
Sunday October 4th

119 N Peoria 3D

Please invite your friends.

Traditionally, The Schubertiad was an evening of performances amongst friends of Schubert, where guests performed.
Let us imagine a contemporary Schubertiad. An invitation to make musical performances together, to try out a collaboration, or meld the musical practices with those of a Social Art Space.
We hope to see proposals for experimentation, and an imaginative tribute to the tradition, interpreted in a variety of forms.

To be considered:

Include your contact information along with a brief written description* of your plan (or statement) in the body of an email addressed to Spoke SpokeChicago(at)

musicians/artists/performers are invited to visit the space and meet each other and bring props or equipment on
Saturday, October 3rd from noon to 6pm. We will hold one performance on Sunday October 4th at 3:30, and a possible encore or additional performances through the week. The Schubertiad will be videotaped as documentation of our work, and distributed for a small donation. If any special considerations are needed (and we hope there are) we will try to assist.

*musicians/artists/performers are asked to submit a title and short description for our records. However, as this format is more of a collaborative experimental event to be held in the presence of peers; strict adherence, rigid rehearsals, and previous performances, musical or visual are not necessary.
