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 the amazing passion and artistry of Curtis musicians. Each year over 100 free Student, Studio, and Faculty Recitals are presented on most Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings.

Visit our Calendar for a complete listing of upcoming performances.

Admission requires advance registration and is complimentary. Registration will be limited to four tickets per request. Due to limited seating capacity, there will be no standing room or walk-up tickets to these events.

Recital registration links can be found through the Calendar or on individual event pages.

Experience the incredible artistry and compelling performances from home. For those who can’t make it to live performances we welcome you to watch the Curtis Recital Series online. Curtis will livestream Friday recitals on Facebook and YouTube at 7:30 p.m. during the season.
