BENEFIT GALA & AUCTION!

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 will begin 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 will be unveiled in the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater – featuring an original Rock School ballet set to a never before heard score composed by The Curtis Institutes composer Elise Arancio, choreographed by alumni/Resident Choreographer & Associate Director, Justin Allen–and performed live by Rock School dancers with a Curtis Institute ensemble. Gala performances include vignettes from our international dancers. A delectable, Cuban inspired, dining experience under the stars in the Kimmel’s expansive Commonwealth Plaza will be enlivened by the music of Conjunto, a live auction with QVC hosts, and the ambiance of Havana Nights.

This benefit is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors (in the left column) and our Gala Co-Chairs:

Ali Bauer-Crouch
Vice President,
Brown Brothers Harriman

and

Lauren R. Baer
Assistant U.S. Attorney, US Attorney's Office

We hope to see you at the Kimmel Center
for the Performing Arts on Friday, May 10, 2019
