Performances

Curtis presents a season Made With Love.

Join us in 2022-23 as our students move from the classroom to the stage, sharing their passion through exuberant performances with world renowned guest artists.

Curtis Symphony Orchestra

Curtis students join together each year to create one of the world’s great orchestras. Led by internationally renowned conductors and featuring sparkling repertoire, the Curtis Symphony Orchestra is an immersive experience with unique resonance. The ensemble presents three subscription performances each year in Verizon Hall on the Kimmel Cultural Campus.

Curtis Opera Theatre

Through imaginative productions, bold concepts, and absorbing theater, the artists of the Curtis Opera Theatre prepare to become stars of the world stage. The combination of key elements of artistry—music, acting, singing, and costumes—allows these student-artists to create a lasting connection with audiences.

Ensemble 20/21

Ensemble 20/21’s repertoire features works from the 20th and 21st centuries. With bold collaborations and striking productions, Ensemble 20/21 embraces the cutting edge of contemporary classical music through the highest level of artistry.

Curtis Presents

Past and future meet through Curtis Presents, a diverse collection of artists—alumni, faculty, students, and contemporary creators—whose musical foundations are rooted in the Curtis community.

Curtis Recital Series

The promise of “learn by doing” lies at the heart of Curtis’s philosophy, and the Curtis Recital Series allows us to make that promise a reality. From young student artists experiencing their first professional performance to faculty who’ve played on stages across the globe, this Series showcases all that we have to offer as musicians and educators.
