Board chair gives Curtis $11.5 million

Posted: December 16, 2014

The board chair of the Curtis Institute of Music has pledged two new gifts to the school totaling $11.5 million. Baroness Nina von Maltzahn is making a $10 million gift to the endowment to establish the Nina von Maltzahn President's Chair, a post currently held by Roberto Díaz, plus $1.5 million to underwrite the Curtis on Tour program during the next three years.


The endowment gift helps to continue Curtis' tuition-free practice, and the investment in the touring program extends its concerts in Europe, Asia, and South America and related student-recruitment and fund-raising there.

"That is actually how Nina became acquainted with Curtis, through Curtis on Tour, and she believes in it. It is a way for us to develop a presence around the country and around the world," Díaz said.
