The Curtis Crescendo Club hosts a series of exclusive events each year to introduce Philadelphia's young professionals to the myriad musical talents of Curtis students. Many of these students will soon shine on the world's biggest stages, following in the steps of Curtis alumni like Leonard Bernstein, Jennifer Higdon, and Lang Lang.
Since 1927, students have attended the Curtis Institute of Music tuition-free, allowing the school to attract the finest young musicians from around the world. To demonstrate our support, Crescendo Club members donate funds to support an annual fellowship for one of Curtis's incredible students. This year's Crescendo Club fellow is Joshua Halpern, an award-winning cellist from Dayton, Ohio, whose education we are thrilled to support.
We look forward to sharing the Curtis experience with you at an upcoming performance.
