THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT JOINED US FOR
HAVANA NIGHTS
BENEFIT GALA & AUCTION!

On Friday, May 10, 2019 The Rock School joined the Curtis Institute of Music for the 11th year (and possibly most exciting ever), of world-premiere, live performance on stage, in our new Gala location at The Kimmel Center for Havana Nights.

The Rock School/Curtis Institute of Music collaboration, a partnership envisioned over a decade ago, by the late Dr. Milton L. Rock–joins the superior talents of two world-renowned cultural institutions, right here in Philadelphia. Havana Nights honors the world renowned Rock School Students heralding from 12 countries.  

The evening began with a lavish cocktail hour and silent auction set high above Broad Street with grand views of the Avenue of the Arts from the Kimmel Center’s balcony and mezzanine. The world-premiere performance was unveiled in the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater followed by Gala performances and vignettes from our international dancers. A delectable, Cuban inspired, dining experience under the stars in the Kimmel’s expansive Commonwealth Plaza was enlivened by the music of Conjunto, a live auction with QVC hosts Rachel Boesing and Cara Kahn, and the ambiance of a night in Havana.

Thank you for joining us at the Kimmel Center
for the Performing Arts on May 10, 2019
