The Curtis Institute of Music highly values a diverse international student body. As has been the school's policy since 1924, Curtis welcomes all applicants regardless of race, geographic origin, religious background, socio-economic level, gender, or sexual orientation. 

Admissions are based on artistic promise alone. Enrollment is limited to the number of musicians needed for a symphony orchestra, opera department, and select programs in piano, composition, conducting, organ, guitar, and harpsichord. Located in Philadelphia, Curtis provides full-tuition scholarships to all of its students.

We asked some of our esteemed students, faculty, and alumni to share the reasons why they're grateful to have chosen Curtis as a place to study and work. Read more about their experiences.
