The Beethoven Club has a long history in Memphis. Founded in 1888 by a group of accomplished local pianists, the club’s purpose has always been to promote classical musicians and a love of classical music. For 132 years, this venerable institution has hosted weekly recitals by members at various locations, including at the Library.


If you can’t catch us live/virtually above, then you can always watch videos of book talks and more.
