The Curtis Institute of Music is one of the world's most prestigious conservatories, and it's in our own backyard. TTN members are invited for a "Behind the Scenes Tour" where you will have the opportunity to speak with Curtis students and staff plus tour areas of Curtis buildings that are not usually open to the public.
The evening will begin at with light refreshments in the Locks Board Room of Curtis's Lenfest Hall. After a brief orientation to Curtis there will be time for Q & A with students and staff before we tour the non-resident floors of the Lenfest Building. Then we will tour the Main Curtis building at 1726 Locust Street
