Musical Fund Society Bicentennial
The Nation's Oldest Music Society Celebrates Philadelphia with Four New Works Performed by Curtis 20/21, Astral Artists, PRISM Qtet and NNM!
The Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia will celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2020 by commissioning four eminent American composers to create works connected to the city of Philadelphia and premiered by four acclaimed Philadelphia ensembles. Due to high demand this event has been moved from Settlement Music School’s Mary Louise Curtis branch to the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater.
Additionally, the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Fleisher Collection and the University of Pennsylvania’s Kislak Center are featuring special year-long exhibits of MFS historical narrative and memorabilia—including the manuscript of Bartok’s third string quartet and a lock of hair from Niccolo Paganini.
