JOIN US FOR THE ROCK SCHOOL’S
Havana Nights
Benefit gala & Auction!

On Friday, May 10, 2019 The Rock School will join the Curtis Institute of Music for the 11th year 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.

The evening will begin with a lavish cocktail hour and silent/live 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, choreographed by a talented Rock School selected artist and performed live by Rock School dancers with a Curtis Institute ensemble. Gala performances include vignettes from our conservatory ballet students, and guest alumni. A delectable, Cuban inspired, dining experience under the stars in the Kimmel’s expansive Commonwealth Plaza will be enlivened by the music of Conjunto 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
