Curtis on Tour

Curtis on Tour is the Nina von Maltzahn global touring initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music. Based on the school's guiding philosophy of "learning by doing", the tours feature extraordinary emerging musicians alongside celebrated alumni and faculty. In addition to performing concerts, during the tour the musicians conduct master classes, educational programmes and community outreach activities. Curtis on Tour also represents Curtis artists in solo engagements with professional presenters and orchestras. Since the programme was established in 2008, Curtis on Tour ensembles have performed over 375 concerts in more than 100 cities in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

ABOUT CURTIS

The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally talented young musicians to enter the local and global community at the highest artistic level. For nearly a century, Curtis has provided each member of its small student body with absolutely exceptional quality instruction alongside their peers, distinguished by a philosophy of "learning by doing" and the personal attention of a faculty that includes a high proportion of active performers. To ensure that admission is based solely on artistic talent and ability, Curtis invests in each accepted student so that no tuition is charged for their studies.
Curtis students hone their skills in more than 200 artistic performances annually as soloists and participants in orchestras, opera and chamber music, and in programmes that provide community access to the arts and arts education. This real-world training enables our extraordinary young musicians to join the front line of performers, composers, conductors and musical leaders who make a profound impact on music, both on stage and in their communities.
