ABOUT THE CRESCENDO CLUB
The Crescendo Club gathers Philadelphia's young professionals to celebrate the world's finest young musicians at the Curtis Institute of Music, where all students attend tuition-free.
"In partnership with some of Philadelphia's finest culinary and arts institutions, we host a series of free events each season to showcase the unparalleled talent of Curtis's prodigious young students, most of whom go on to perform at the highest professional level on the grandest stages across the globe. Where else in the world can you go to observe the next Lang Lang or Leonard Bernstein, while still in the process of developing his or her musical voice? Curtis provides full-tuition scholarships to all of its students so you can be certain all of the funds raised through your Crescendo Club membership are used to help fund the world's finest musical education for these exceptional young students."
