Curtis in Concert


Sep 21, 2019 to Sep 29, 2019


Building on the success of Festival O18’s “Fridays at Field” recital series, emergent singers trained at Philadelphia’s prestigious Curtis Institute of Music once again perform in recital at the historic and intimate Field Concert Hall. Hailed as “a delightful afternoon” (Parterre), the series has been expanded for O19, with separate Saturday and Sunday recitals repeated over both weekends of the festival. 

On September 21 & 28, “lush-toned” (Wall Street Journal) soprano and Curtis alumna Rachel Sterrenberg, known to Opera Philadelphia audiences for leading roles in The Magic Flute and Charlie Parker’s Yardbird, will perform works by female composers alongside Curtis student Sophia Hunt. A modern-day Frauenliebe und Leben—telling the story of a relationship, its disintegration, and aftermath—the recital features songs by Jennifer Higdon, Libby Larsen, Clara Schumann, and more.

On September 22 & 29, Curtis alumna and Philadelphia native Karen Slack, a soprano hailed for her “warm and rich voice” (Opera News), and current Curtis student Martin Luther Clark will perform works by Ravel, Aldophus C. Hailstork, Harry Thacker Burleigh, and Puccini, as well as traditional African-American spirituals.
