Welcome to the Germantown Branch

Our Germantown Branch is Settlement’s second oldest site, founded in 1958 by then Executive Director Sol Schoenbach, former principal bassoonist of the Philadelphia Orchestra. In addition to Settlement’s original location, the Mary Louise Curtis Branch, Germantown houses Settlement’s nationally recognized Kaleidoscope Preschool Arts Enrichment Program. Committed to furthering Settlement’s more than century-long endeavor to provide quality arts education to the local community it serves, Germantown’s enrollment reflects the families that call our neighborhood home. With a diverse student body of all ages, nearly 40% are African American. In addition to private instrumental and voice instruction, Germantown also offers a number of class and ensemble opportunities for students to learn together in a group setting. Germantown is home of the Gleeksman-Kohn Children’s Choir, SATB High School Choir, jazz and string ensembles, and the Benjamin and Carol Auger Contemporary Ensemble. We also offer classes in musicianship, classical ballet, and for children as young as 19 months.
