    For the first time, access the academic expertise of Curtis Institute of Music in a flexible, in-person course that is open to all. Curtis’s evening seminars will deepen your experience of concertgoing through an exploration of the repertoire presented on a Curtis Symphony Orchestra concert. Taught by the chair of Curtis’s musical studies department, Jonathan Coopersmith, the seminars provide an expert dive into each composer’s life and the historical context of the corresponding programming. After attending, you’ll hear the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in performance with intimate knowledge of the repertoire and performers, transforming your listening experience.

    Each seminar will focus on a particular piece from an upcoming concert, providing insight on the biography of the composer, the historical context of the piece, and an analysis of its form and what to listen for. Each night will also introduce a discussion topic related to classical music and the concert-going experience. Sign
