Spring Gala 2023
Save the Date: April 15, 2023
Celebrate the legacy of composition and conducting at Curtis!
Celebrating Curtis’s legacy of conducting and composing, our orchestra has an inspiring program planned under the baton of Osmo Vänskä. It includes a newly commissioned work by James Ra (’04). Ra’s electrifying compositions have been described as “coursing with adrenaline-pumping energy.” The program also features Robert Schumann’s beloved Piano Concerto in A minor with Amy Yang (’06), our new associate dean of piano studies and artistic initiatives, as soloist. The program concludes with Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 “Titan.”
Following the concert, guests will enjoy a festive gala celebration at the Kimmel Center. Secure your seats today.
