An embodiment of the school’s “learn by doing” philosophy, Curtis On Tour brings the extraordinary artistry of the world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music to audiences around the globe. The Summer 2014 New England tour features a string chamber orchestra performing Antonio Vivaldi’s iconic The Four Seasons paired with Ástor Piazzolla’s tango masterpieces Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires) featuring celebrated Curtis alumna violinist Elissa Lee Koljonen (’94).

Since Curtis On Tour was established in 2008, students, faculty, and alumni have traveled to 44 destinations in Europe, Asia, and North and South America, with new venues added each year.

The proceeds from this concert will help fund the restoration of the late 18th-early 19th century “Church Bass” that has been in the Wellfleet Congregational Church for many years.
