NEWS

Thanks to our friends at Opera Philadelphia for inviting the Crescendo Club to the final young friends event of its 40th Anniversary Season, at Charlie Parker’s Yardbird on Friday, June 12th. They will kick things off with a pre-show champagne talk from Sarah Williams, New Works Administrator, and then mingle with artists at a post-performance reception. Tickets are available here. The first two performances of YARDBIRD are already sold out, so this will definitely be a hot ticket. Purchase deadline is May 27!

Keep an eye on www.curtis.edu/calendar throughout the summer. There will be several free concerts happening at Curtis involving Summerfest faculty, Curtis on Tour, and more!

Congratulations to the Class of 2015!


ABOUT THE CRESCENDO CLUB

The Curtis Crescendo Club (CCC), celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, comprises members of the Friends of Curtis, ages 40 and under, who enjoy special networking events and other benefits to get more involved at Curtis and in classical music in Philadelphia. Each year, the CCC hosts an annual networking event, Classics and Cocktails, and is hosted by a member of the Curtis faculty, who provides commentary about the music and Q & A with student performers.

"The Crescendo Club is special in that the people we attract come from very diverse backgrounds and professions. Some have a musical background, some don't -- but we're all inspired by the talent and enthusiasm of these young musicians. And our events are really fun; they mirror the energy and excitement of the students."  --John Papianou, Founder, Crescendo Club
