Curtis 20/21 Ensemble

This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre.

Discover the compositional voices of tomorrow, now. The Curtis Institute of Music trains composers and musicians of the highest caliber, who go on to make major contributions in the field.  Their performances have been inspiring Miller audiences since the start of our annual collaboration, in 2012.  Hear them in this evening’s Pop-Up Concert, at the beginning of their journey, as their fellow students perform their chamber works.

All concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
