CHRISTIAN J, SCHUBERT,
Director of the Guthrie Conservatory of Music,
Mr. Schubert was born in Chicago, Ills., July 3, 1870. He
received his musical education at the Royal Conservatory of Music
in Munich, Germany, and studied the piano virtuoso with
Berthold Kellerman, Royal Court Pianist, and pupil of Franz
Lizst, from 1885-89. Vocal culture with Otto Hieber; harmony and
composition with Josef Rheinberg-e; conducting with Ludwig Abel.
After graduating from the Conservatory in Munich, he returned
to Chicago and taught piano, voice culture and conducting with
success until 18(>5, when he was called west to Gates College,
Neligh, Nebraska, as Musical Director, and after an engagement
oi two years received a public testimonial in evidence of his
success. In 1891 he acted as judge of a diamond medal contest
ottered by the Chicago Musical College, in company with Emil
Liebling and Madam Rive King. For the past two years
Mr. Schubert was Musical Director of the Fremont xNormal
School, Fremont Nebraska, from which place he comes to Guthrie
where he has established a Conservatory of Music and has been
elected Supervisor of Music in the public schools, and Director
of the First Regiment Band of Oklahoma Territory.
Mr. Schubert has been referred to by both American and
oreign authorities as having reached the highest grade of devel-
opment as a musician, which enables him to teach his chosen
art perfectly so as to command praise for his abilities. He will
undoubtedly be heartily welcomed by the music loving people of
Guthrie, who desire a man of broad musicianship—competent to
make Guthrie the musical center of the territory. The Conserv-
atory is located in an elegant suite of rooms at 115 East Oklahoma
Avenue, where Mr. Schubert will receive visitors as well as those
desiring to study music at any time.
The following testimonial speaks for itself:
