ABOUT THE CRESCENDO CLUB

The Curtis Crescendo Club (CCC) comprises members of the Friends of Curtis, ages 40 and under, who enjoy special networking events and other benefits to get more involved at Curtis and in classical music in Philadelphia. Each year, the CCC hosts an annual networking event, Classics and Cocktails, and is hosted by a member of the Curtis faculty, who provides commentary about the music and Q & A with student performers.

"The Crescendo Club is special in that the people we attract come from very diverse backgrounds and professions. Some have a musical background, some don't -- but we're all inspired by the talent and enthusiasm of these young musicians. And our events are really fun; they mirror the energy and excitement of the students."  --John Papianou, Founder, Crescendo Club
