The 19-member ensemble is from The Curtis Institute of Music, who has a 90-year history of educating and training exceptionally gifted young musicians for careers as performing artists at the highest professional level. The unique professional training (and the full tuition scholarships provided to all of its students) has enabled Curtis alumni like Lang Lang, Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein and others, to assume prominent positions in America’s leading orchestras and ensembles around the world. About Curtis The extraordinary young musicians of Curtis graduate to join 4,000 alumni who have long made music history. Each season leading orchestras, opera houses, and chamber music series around the world feature Curtis alumni. They are in the front rank of soloists, composers, and conductors and hold principal chairs in every major American orchestra. Curtis graduates are musical leaders, making a profound impact on music onstage and in their communities.

The Curtis Chamber Orchestra appears as part of Curtis on Tour, the Nina von Maltzahn Global Touring Initiative. An embodiment of the school’s “learn by doing” philosophy, it offers students real-world, professional touring experience alongside celebrated alumni and faculty. In addition to performances, musicians offer master classes, interactive programs, and community engagement activities while on tour. Curtis on Tour also facilitates solo performances by Curtis students and alumni with professional orchestras and recital series. Since the program was established in 2008, students, faculty, and alumni have performed more than 200 concerts in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

The program’s highlight—Mozart’s “Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat Major”—features renowned violist Roberto Díaz, president of the Curtis Institute of Music, and legendary violinist and faculty member Shmuel Ashkenasi.
