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 at 6 p.m., and Wednesday and Friday evenings at 8 p.m. Additional dates and times are added throughout the year. Student Recitals are free and open to the public. Seating is general admission and first-come, first-served. Most recitals are about two hours long, with one intermission.


Curtis Rewards Card Program

Patrons can obtain a Curtis Rewards Card at any student recital and present it for scanning at each recital attended. With repeated attendance, cardholders earn Curtis merchandise, gift certificates to ticketed Curtis performances, and discounts to Philadelphia restaurants, among other incentives.
