Curtis Presents


Highlighting Curtis alumni and faculty in a new recital series, Curtis Presents brings Curtis graduates and faculty members from around the world to Field Concert Hall. Performers are leaders in their field, whose success as musicians in the 21st century continues the impact and legacy of Curtis music-making, achieved over more than eight decades. Proceeds from the concerts directly benefit current Curtis students.
