“Juilliard’s graduate-level Historical Performance program was established in September 2009, achieving immediate recognition as one of the leading programs of its kind. The department’s faculty members include many renowned performers, scholars, writers, and teachers in the field of period-instrument practice, as well as the members of Juilliard Baroque, one of four resident ensembles at Juilliard.
As a student in the tuition-free program, you will work closely with our dedicated faculty members and enjoy regular performance opportunities of a wide variety of repertoire for small and large ensembles and solo recitals in a number of public venues. Juilliard415, the School’s student period-instrument ensemble, performs works from the 17th and 18th centuries in concert venues at Lincoln Center and beyond. You can also gain valuable interactive performance experience by participating in one of Juilliard’s educational or community outreach programs.
