Student recitals at Field Concert Hall is a fabulous experience! These students are very talented, it is a great pleasure to hear their music interpretations before many of them make names for themselves. All for free!

Beautiful building and most important - superb musicians. Get a copy of the student concert listings and go to one or two. They are free and the quality of playing is exceptional. If you love music you should go to the Curtis!
