Morning Musicales, presented by The West Philadelphia Committee, was inaugurated in 1962 and has continued since then without interruption. Inspired by the late Mrs. Frederick T. van Urk, Morning Musicales provides an opportunity for excellent young performers to appear before discriminating audiences with the possibility of review by professional music critics. The series also helps to provide funds to support projects associated with The Philadelphia Orchestra.
In its 55th year of presenting emerging artists in the Music World, Morning Musicales returns to The Field Auditorium at The Curtis Institute of Music. Treat yourself to one or all three of these hour long concerts at 11 AM and meet the artist afterwards at a reception. Series tickets start at $50 and individual tickets may be purchased at the door for $20. If you are interested in receiving an invitation or attending, please contact the Volunteer Relations Office at email@example.com or go to Volunteer Events page.
