Christian Schubert

Houston Symphony

 

"D'Addario Reserve Classic reeds were a quantum leap for me.  It was the first time in my career that I could open up a box of reeds and know that several of them would meet my highest standards, working very well in practice and in concert. I spend much less time looking for reeds and much more time having fun practicing and performing onstage, as a result."

 



ABOUT Christian Schubert

 

Christian has been the second clarinetist of the Houston Symphony since 1996 when he was appointed by Music Director Christoph Eschenbach. A native of Los Angeles, he studied at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, where he received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in music performance. His principal teachers have been Kalman Bloch, Robert Marcellus and Larry Combs.

Prior to arriving in Houston, Christian played with numerous Chicago-area ensembles, including the Chicago Lyric Opera Orchestra, Grant Park Music Festival, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Ravinia Festival Orchestra and The Chicago Ensemble.

As a teacher, he has served on the music faculties of North Park University in Chicago and the University of Houston's Moores School of Music. Currently, he maintains a private teaching studio in Pearland, TX. Christian is also the co-founder of Houston Clarinet Camp, a high intensity clarinet experience for junior high and high school clarinetists and their teachers, directed by clarinetists from the Houston Symphony.

In his time away from teaching and performing, Christian owns and operates a recording engineering company, Schubert Recording Services, specializing in the quality digital recording of classical music. And in his time away from work, he is the devoted father of two teenage daughters.
