Hiring Curtis Students

Curtis students may be available as featured paid performers for recitals and concerts. Unfortunately we do not book students to perform weddings, receptions, dinners, parties, memorial services, or other types of background events. See Instruction and Performance Resources below for recommended options.

To inquire about booking Curtis performers for concerts and recitals please send requests to Grace Smith at or 215-717-3174 and include the following:

  • event description
  • date and times
  • location
  • specific needs

For community engagement events, such as school or church outreach, please send requests to Mary Javian at
