Bringing Music Back

In the spirit of the holiday season, we'd like to share one of many stories of Curtis musicians giving back to the Philadelphia community. Through a special service-year initiative designed for recent graduates, Curtis ArtistYear Fellow Alize Rozsnyai (Opera '15) has dedicated herself to helping rebuild the choral program at South Philadelphia High School—the alma mater of musical legends like Marian Anderson, Mario Lanza, and members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. In recent years, the school was without any music classes at all. But Alize made it her mission to help bring music back to the halls of South Philly High, using her Curtis training to "learn by doing" and grow as a mentor and a teacher, while inspiring these eager young performers. As you watch Alize describe her experience, we hope you feel both inspired and proud. Thank you for being part of our community, and for helping us carry all that is excellent—and good—about music out into the world.
