Musicians from Curtis in recital

Join us as Curtis Institute of Music students perform live from the WRTI Performance Studio. It's a preview of their Saturday, November 17th two-part recital at the Gould Rehearsal Hall in Lenfest Hall at 1616 Locust Street in Philadelphia.

Watch the performance recorded live on the WRTI Facebook page.

The students chat with host Kevin Gordon about this special performance, which involves their research into the music and how they can share their knowledge of the pieces with everyone from laymen to classical music experts. Their Saturday concert is free and will also include light refreshments.
