Working with leading classical artists is an essential part of the educational experience at Curtis. Visiting artists give master classes, conduct the opera and orchestra, coach chamber ensembles, and perform side-by-side with students. In addition to alumni, the roster includes soloists and conductors engaged with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Philadelphia Chamber Music Society and other influential artists. They enhance the experience of weekly lessons and coachings with Curtis’s own renowned faculty.
