The Brass Project
The Brass Project is a brass sextet formed by leading players from Philadelphia’s celebrated Curtis Institute of Music. During the Museum’s blockbuster exhibit this fall /winter —Trumpets, Weird and Wonderful — this brilliant, young brass ensemble will be in residence twice!
The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally gifted young musicians to engage a local and global community through the highest level of artistry. One of the most selective schools in the United States, Curtis accepts four percent of applicants each year on average. With a small student body of about 175, Curtis ensures that each young musician receives an education of unparalleled quality, distinguished by real-world training and personalized attention from a faculty that includes a high proportion of actively performing musicians. The training allows these extraordinary young musicians to join the front rank of performers, composers, conductors, and musical leaders, making a profound impact on music onstage and in their communities.
The Brass Project appears by special arrangement with Curtis on Tour, the Nina von Maltzahn global touring initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music.
Students: $20 with ID
Groups of 10 or more: $33

What Makes it Great?
Through his concert presentations, commentaries and CD series, Rob Kapilow helps listeners understand “what makes great music great”. In the first part of each program, he explores a piece of music thoroughly to understand why it is so extraordinary. Then in the second part, the music is heard performed in its entirety, hopefully with a totally new perspective.
Characterized by his unique ability to create an “aha” moment for his audiences and collaborators, whatever their level of musical sophistication, Kapilow’s work brings music into people’s lives, opening new ears to musical experiences and helping people to listen actively rather than just hear.
Theatermania.com calls Rob Kapilow’s engaging commentaries “a knockout combination of entertainment and education.”
After the program, there will be a complimentary reception to meet and mingle with the performers.
