The Tuesday Musical Club, Inc., holds the distinction of being the oldest music club for women in Texas. Mrs. Eli Hertzberg (Anna), who was a graduate of the New York Conservatory of Music, founded the Tuesday Musical Club in 1901 for the purpose of performing and discussing classical music.

Currently, the Club numbers about 250 members. Since 1956, the Young Artists Competition is held each Spring for serious students of music who reside or study in Texas.
