The Curtis Institute of Music’s all-school projects are interdepartmental, educational, and cultural extravaganzas, characterized by a simultaneous, intensive examination of a specific composition, genre, or era across the academic curriculum, performance studies, and extracurriculum.
The projects provide a unique opportunity for all Curtis students to:
- deepen and broaden their artistry by studying and performing together a defined repertoire;
- practice critical listening and analysis of that repertoire, along with research, writing, and discussion in musical studies courses; and
- explore the surrounding social history, literature, philosophy, psychology, visual art, politics, and general cultural ethos in liberal arts courses.
Extracurricular programs such as outside concerts, lectures, museum visits, and social activities expand the students’ learning experience beyond the walls of Curtis.
