Welcome to the Keys for Curtis "piano pages." For the campaign, this piano has been named after composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, one of the twenty-two composers selected to represent the deep heritage and diversity of classical music.
Born in 1840, Tchaikovsky entered the St. Petersburg Conservatory in 1862, where he studied composition with Anton Rubinstein. His many compositions include some of the most popular music in the classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, the 1812 Overture, and his Piano Concerto No.1.
Our Thanks to Gerri Aaron
Curtis is grateful to Gerri Aaron whose generous gift has made it possible for Curtis to purchase the "Tchaikovsky" piano. "I love Curtis," she says. "And Lenfest Hall will make such an impact - there is clearly such a need for these new pianos. Having a piano of 'mine' among them can hopefully provide the students a great chance to produce beautiful music. I hope others will be inspired by my interest and support and they, too, will open their hearts and pockets."
THANK YOU for your gift to Curtis!
