PRISM Quartet

The Curtis Project

PRISM makes history as the first saxophone quartet to conduct a residency at the Curtis Institute of Music, renowned as one of the world’s finest conservatories. The residency culminates in PRISM concerts in Philadelphia and New York City featuring compositions by two Curtis faculty members: “Short Stories” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon and the world premiere of a new work by Independence Foundation fellow David Ludwig. The program also includes premieres of works by Mohammed Fairouz, Katerina Kramarchuk, Thomas Oltarzewski, Allegra Gabriella Smith, Daniel Temkin, and Timothy Woos, extraordinary student artists from Curtis’ composition department.
