Alumni Recital Series


:: About the Alumni Recital Series

:: Dover String Quartet on April 21

:: 2013–14 season


The Alumni Recital Series brings Curtis graduates from around the world back to Field Concert Hall. Performers are leaders in their field, whose success as musicians in the 21st-century continues the impact and legacy of Curtis music-making achieved over more than eight decades. Artists on the Alumni Recital Series donate their services, and proceeds from the concerts directly benefit current Curtis students. In recent years contributions have been made toward the purchase of student tickets to Philadelphia Orchestra concerts, acquisitions for the library, the student travel fund, and instrument repairs.


Sunday, April 21 at 3 p.m.

Formed at the Curtis Institute of Music in 2008, the Dover String Quartet (formerly the Old City String Quartet) draws from the musical lineage of both the Vermeer and Guarneri quartets and brings a youthful enthusiasm and musical conviction that is truly its own. Praised by The Strad for their “exceptional interpretative maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble,” the quartet was named Gold Medalist and Grand Prize winner of the 2010 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and was a prizewinner at Wigmore Hall’s 2012 London International String Quartet Competition.
