On Sunday, April 13th, at the Kimmel Center, the Curtis Institute of Music honored Curtis board chairman H. F. “Gerry” Lenfest and Curtis overseer Marguerite Lenfest for their transformational contributions to Curtis.

After eight years as board chairman, Mr. Lenfest steps down at the end of the school year in May. He has been an important contributor of knowledge and funding to the Curtis Institute, playing a pivitol role in the opening of Lenfest Hall in 2011, in addition to the completion of the faculty chair challenge which added $34 million to the endowment, and the launch of Curtis on Tour, which brought performances by Curtis students and faculty overseas.
