Curtis Symphony Orchestra


A “collective marvel” (Philadelphia Inquirer), the Curtis Symphony Orchestra embodies the sheer joy of music-making. Honing their craft under celebrated conductors, 100 young musicians perform with a fresh exuberance that makes each work new. 

Orchestral concerts are supported by the Jack Wolgin Curtis Orchestral Concerts Endowment Fund.
