Lenfest Hall is Open!

On September 6, 2011, the Curtis Institute of Music cut the ribbon, opened the doors of Lenfest Hall—and stepped boldly into the future.

The building is destined to transform the school, nurturing new ideas, new collaborations, and new ways to engage with audiences. Curtis will never be quite the same again—and yet our foundation remains as strong as ever.

Follow the building’s development through Lenfest Hall newsletters and press coverage.
