One of the most selective schools in the United States, Curtis Institute of Music accepts four percent of applicants each year on average, and a tuition-free policy ensures that talent and artistic promise are the only considerations for admission. Curtis students hone their craft through more than 200 orchestra, opera, and solo and chamber music offerings each year and programs that bring arts access and education to the community. This real-world training allows these extraordinary young musicians to join the front rank of performers, composers, conductors, and musical leaders, making a profound impact on music onstage and in their communities.
Curtis on Tour is the school’s Nina von Maltzahn global touring initiative. Touring ensembles feature celebrated faculty and alumni artists performing alongside emerging artists from the school.
This year we will experience a brass quintet of alumni perform a diverse program, from Bach to Gershwin. The quintet features members of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, the Louisville Orchestra, and New York’s The Brass Project. “One of the world’s leading music academies” (BBC Culture).
