Student Recital Series

Student Recital Series

Discover them before the world does.

The Student Recital Series provides a platform for exceptional young musicians—and more than 100 free opportunities for audiences to indulge in a season-long showcase of artistry. Since Curtis was founded in 1924, some of history’s most important musicians have appeared on the stage of Field Concert Hall, and today the Student Recital Series continues this celebrated legacy.

Students perform solo and chamber works most Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings at 8 p.m., as well as on many weekends. World-renowned faculty and guest artists also join Curtis students for special residency recitals throughout the season. 

For a detailed schedule and program information, visit the Performance Calendar or call the Recital Hotline at (215) 893-5261.
