Curtis Presents: Alan Morrison

Curtis’s newest recital series, Curtis Presents, features organ faculty member Alan Morrison on Sunday, March 23 at 3 p.m. at Field Concert Hall. Also a gifted pianist, he’ll perform in both capacities alongside fellow Curtis alumni Matthew Glandorf, organ; Michelle Cann, piano; John Koen, cello; and Karen Slack, soprano. Also note the final Curtis Presents event of the season: Flute faculty member Jeffrey Khaner performs on April 5.

Overtones Has Arrived

Speaking of faculty, get to know violinist Ida Kavafian in the cover story of the Spring 2014 Overtones—in the mail now. Overtones takes you behind the scenes at Curtis, and is sent twice a year to alumni, Friends of Curtis, and performance subscribers. To receive Overtones, join the Friends today.

Just Posted on Curtis Performs

Hear chamber music by recent composition graduate Thomas Oltarzewski on Curtis Performs: Weather Music was inspired by the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast in October 2012. And mark your calendar for March 31, when this year’s student composers will showcase their orchestral works on the Student Recital Series.
