Curtis Symphony Orchestra
ABOUT THE CURTIS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
The Curtis Symphony Orchestra has been called “an orchestra that any city would be lucky to have as its professional ensemble” (Philadelphia Inquirer). Recent visiting conductors include Charles Dutoit, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Simon Rattle, Robert Spano, and Michael Tilson Thomas. This professional training has enabled Curtis alumni to assume prominent positions in America’s leading orchestras, as well as ensembles around the world.
The orchestra presents three concerts at the Kimmel Center and one in Allentown. Tickets range from $5 to $45.
