Music at the Mansion


    Music at the Mansion is a concert series presented by the Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation and Schreiner University.  The Kerrville Folk Festival wanted an opportunity to give Kerrville residents a taste of the music Kerrville Folk Fest attendees come to Kerrville to hear each year.  Schreiner University owned the Schreiner Mansion located in downtown Kerrville and wanted to demonstrate the use of the Mansion as a place for events.  From its inception in 2013, the concerts were offered as a series of six concerts a year and attendees purchased an annual membership. In 2015 the ownership of the Schreiner Mansion was transferred from Schreiner University to the Cailloux Foundation, and the series was moved from the Schreiner Mansion to the Schreiner University Campus.

    Each concert features two artists.  Artists invited to play Music at the Mansion are all songwriters who have played or are booked to play at the Kerrville Folk Festival.

    Memberships are $500 and include admission for two along with a pre-concert reception giving guests a chance to mingle with one another and the artists prior to the show.  No more than 45 memberships are sold each year to assure guests have a quality, intimate experience.

   Each year, the February Concert is designated as a time when members can bring guests or those interested in becoming members may attend for a preview of the experience.  Members typically turn in their annual renewals at this concert.  Members are asked to RSVP for each concert to determine if there is any space available for guests.  Subject to availability, individuals may attend a concert for $50.  Additionally, Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation members may make a reservation and attend one concert a year, free of charge, subject to availability.   

   For additional information or to make a reservation for a concert, please contact Debbie Scott at Schreiner University.  Her email address is and her phone number is 830-792-7355.

Series Underwriter: Chartwells at Schreiner University

Artists Underwriter: River Trail Cottages

Gold Sponsor: Pint and Plow Brewing Company

    Due to COVID-19, presenters (Schreiner University and the Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation) formulated a plan to re-start the series in March 2021 with safety as the priority.  The first three concerts of the 2021 series will take place at Threadgill Theater on Quiet Valley Ranch in order to provide seating in an open-air environment.  Although the normal seating capacity for Threadgill is approximately 800, with appropriate social distancing, the capacity is 100.

   Guests and artists are required to wear masks except when seated or performing.  Reception food is provided in boxes which can be taken to guests’ seats.  All facilities are sanitized before and after the concerts and hand sanitizer is stationed in several locations.  The concerts were rescheduled from Friday evenings to Saturday afternoons both for comfort, safety, and to provide featured artists with more flexibility when making their travel plans.

    There will be an additional concert on June 12, 2021 to makeup for the cancelled Nov 2020 concert. All attendees from the 2020 series are invited to attend at the Schreiner University Trailhead Beer Garden. 

     The final three concerts of the 2021 series will be held at the Schreiner Junkin Campus Ministry Center.
