    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.

    The Schneider Concerts Series is made possible with support from the Alexander Schneider Foundation and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
