“Curtis On Tour” is for the Nina von Maltzhan Global Touring Initiative of Philadelphia’s famed Curtis Institute of Music. Students hone their artistry at Curtis, which offers real-world, professional touring experience alongside celebrated alumni and faculty. The Vera Quartet will perform with faculty pianist Meng-Chieh Liu. The program will include selections from Beethoven, Franck, and Hertzberg. While in our area, the visitors will offer demonstrations and master classes at several local schools as part of Civic Music’s in-school program.
