Flexible in size and scope, the group performs a wide range of music of contemporary composers and composers from the recent past, and often collaborates with guest artists in residence at Curtis. Recent offerings have included centenary programs for Samuel Barber, Elliott Carter, and Olivier Messiaen; a collaborative performance with eighth blackbird; and a tribute concert for resident composer John Corigliano. Curtis 20/21 is committed to performing and commissioning works from Curtis students and alumni.‚Äč
