About the Rubin Institute for Music Criticism

Situated within the artistic and intellectual vibrancy of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the Rubin Institute for Music Criticism brings together leading music journalists, renowned musicians and aspiring young writers, combining the wisdom and insight of today's highly esteemed critics, the artistry of acclaimed musicians and the energy and promise of tomorrow's music journalists.

Founded in 2011 by Stephen Rubin, renowned book-publishing executive, the biennial Rubin Institute features keynote addresses by the nation’s top critics and public concerts at San Francisco's acclaimed performing arts institutions. The performances are reviewed by a select group of fellows from across the U.S. and Canada and are critiqued alongside professional journalists in private workshops. The Institute culminates with the awarding of the $10,000 Rubin Prize in Music Criticism to the fellow who demonstrates exceptional promise in music criticism. Institute graduates have gone on to write for distinguished publications such as the New Yorker, Boston Globe, Washington Post and others.
