Grand Season Finale This Weekend

The Curtis Symphony Orchestra caps its season this Sunday with Stravinsky, Penderecki, and Tchaikovsky at Verizon Hall. Curtis faculty member Ignat Solzhenitsyn conducts, with soloists Benjamin Schmid, violin and Roberto Díaz, viola. Conducting fellow Kensho Watanabe is also featured. See program details and secure your seats now! A grand gala honoring Gerry and Marguerite Lenfest precedes the concert and it’s not too late to celebrate—plan to join us!

Instant Encore Adds to the Concert

A New Spring Tradition

Last year’s Spring Chamber Music Festival at St. Mark’s Church was a rousing success, with casual hour-long concerts at lunchtime in this beautiful venue. So we’re making it a tradition. These free recitals begin at 12:45 p.m. and the first one is on April 21. Be there!

New On Curtis Performs

Hear and see selections from Handel’s Rinaldo, presented last spring by the Curtis Opera Theatre, on Curtis Performs. The high drama and vocal fireworks should get you in the perfect mood for the next opera production, La Cenerentola—Rossini’s sparkling version of the Cinderella story—at the Prince Theatre May 1–4.

Creating Cold Mountain

The young singers of the Curtis Opera Theatre have played a starring role in the development of Cold Mountain, a new opera by faculty member Jennifer Higdon that will premiere at the Santa Fe Opera and Opera Philadelphia in 2015. Read about their experience and the new work in the current issue of Overtones.
