The Curtis Crescendo Club (CCC) was launched in 2009 to energize the school's fan base and build support among a younger generation of classical music lovers in Philadelphia.
The CCC General Membership, more than four hundred strong, enjoys a wide variety of free events each year around Curtis performances. These events provide an introduction to classical music and to Curtis--a cultural gem in Philadelphia and a world-renowned conservatory.
Due to the CCC's rapid growth, a Contributing Membership option is now being piloted in the 2012-13 year. Contributing Members deepen their commitment to Curtis by supporting the school's all-scholarship policy through their membership giftsand receive exclusive benefits in appreciation.
"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 enthusiasum of these young musicians. And our events are really fun; they mirror the energy and excitement of the students." --John Papianou, Founding Chair, Crescendo Club
