The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally gifted young musicians for careers as performing artists on the highest professional level. Students Bryan Anderson, Joseph Russell and Thomas Sheehan will be playing brilliant masterworks by Cesar Franck, Joseph Jongen and Gaston Litaize.

One of the world’s leading conservatories, Curtis is highly selective, with an enrollment of about 165. A busy schedule of performances is at the heart of Curtis’s distinctive “learn by doing” approach, which has produced an impressive number of notable artists since the school’s founding in Philadelphia in 1924.

Alan Morrison, who is the Ursinus College organist, Chairs the Curtis Institute of Music Organ Department. He is a graduate of Curtis and Juilliard, and is recognized as one of America’s premier concert organists.
