Curtis on Tour
Nina von Maltzahn Global Initiative del Curtis Institute of Music
Since becoming Curtis’s first quartet in residence in 2013, the phenomenal Dover Quartet has catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Ban Competition, where this group of four Curtis alumni won every prize. Winner of the Cleveland Quartet Award and the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, the quartet’s rise has been “practically meteoric” (Strings), and it is now one of the world’s most in-demand ensembles. The Dover String Quartet is proud to make its maiden voyage to Latin America under the banner of Curtis on Tour and as a resident quartet of the Curtis Institute of Music.





From October 24th to 30th the Curtis Institute of Music will be conducting its online tour in Latin America with the Curtis on Tour which is Nina von Maltzahn Global Initiative. The presentations will take place at: Mexico, Costra Rica, Peru and Chile.

The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally gifted young musicians to engage a local and global community through the highest level of artistry. One of the most selective schools in the United States, Curtis 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.

With a small student body of about 175, Curtis ensures that each young musician receives an education of unparalleled quality, distinguished by a “learn by doing” philosophy and personalized attention from a faculty that includes a high proportion of actively performing musicians.

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.


Building upon the performance-focused learning philosophy of Curtis, the program offers students real-world, professional touring experience alongside celebrated alumni and faculty. In addition to performing, students also offer master classes and interactive concerts, and participate in community engagement activities. Curtis on Tour also facilitates solo performances of Curtis students and alumni with professional orchestras and recital series. 

Curtis on Tour is the Nina von Maltzahn global touring initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music.
