Student Recital Series

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 on most Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m., and Friday evenings at 8 p.m. Additional dates and times are added throughout the year. Most recitals are about two hours long, with one intermission.

Student Recitals are free and open to the public. Seating is general admission and first-come, first-served. Please arrive early to ensure seating.



The Curtis Institute of Music receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. General operating support for Curtis is provided in part by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund.


The 2018–19 Student Recital Series begins Friday, October 19, 2018.

NEW!—Recitals take place most Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and most Fridays at 8 p.m.
