Discover new talent before the world does through the Student Recital Series. Since Curtis was founded in 1924, some of history’s most important musicians have performed on the stage of Field Concert Hall. The Student Recital Series continues its celebrated legacy as a platform for exceptional young musicians. Students perform solo and chamber works most Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings in Field Concert Hall, as well as on many weekends. World-renowned faculty and guest artists also join Curtis students for special residency recitals throughout the season. Highlights are featured year-round on WHYY-TV’s On Stage at Curtis and WWFM Radio’s Curtis Calls.
