Subscriptions and Discounts

Subscribe and Save

Investing in a subscription at the Curtis Institute of Music means investing in future stars of the world stage. Our alumni have performed with elite ensembles and graced many of the most revered music halls; as a subscriber, you’ll be a part of their musical journey.

We have two options to subscribe: Choose Your Own and Season Pass.

As a proud member of the Philadelphia arts community, we also offer a number of unique opportunities for other local arts organizations to enjoy classical music at a reduced cost.

Choose Your Own

The Choose Your Own subscription option provides the ultimate flexibility to select whichever events you’d like to attend. Choose at least two performances from our extraordinary slate of concerts and opera productions and you’ll enjoy access to full subscriber benefits including discounted tickets, concierge service, special subscriber-only events, and more. Subscriptions start as low as $36.

Season Pass

Enjoy access to all performances in Curtis’s 2024–25 season with a Season Pass. This subscription type allows holders to attend as many performances as they like for a flat fee of $279. The season includes all Curtis Symphony Orchestra, Curtis Opera Theatre, Curtis New Music Ensemble, and Curtis Presents performances. Each pass gives you access to one best-available ticket to each performance.

Once you’ve purchased your Season Pass, our Curtis Patron Services team will send additional information to confirm your selected performances and begin processing the tickets for the performances you are interested in attending.
