Keys for Curtis

Here's your opportunity to purchase one or more of the 1,936 new keys on the twenty-two new Steinway pianos selected by Curtis for the school's new building, Lenfest Hall, which opened in 2011. 

Give to Keys for Curtis

Buy a "Key" for Curtis

The twenty-two new pianos, purchased by Curtis from Steinway & Sons in 2011, are the heart of our "All Steinway" collection. You can help Curtis pay for these beautiful new Steinway pianos by making a gift of a key ($50), an octave ($600), or an entire keyboard ($4,400). Even now, Curtis will recognize your gift to our capital campaign.

If you give an entire keyboard ($4,400), you'll be invited by Curtis for a tour of the Steinway & Sons factory in Long Island City, New York, hosted by Jacobs Music Company, the official Steinway retailer in the tri-state area.

As a thank-you to all Keys for Curtis contributors, Curtis will send you a "Keys for Curtis" keychain and list your name on one of our Keys for Curtis piano web page. There is a web page for each piano, from a Steinway Model "K" upright to a Steinway Model "D" concert grand. For our Keys for Curtis campaign, each piano has been named after a famous composer - you can pick your favorite!
