Juilliard to collaborate with Australia’s Sydney Conservatorium

Posted on: September 13, 2010

The Juilliard School will collaborate for the first time with the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Orchestra when the Sydney ensemble tours the U.S. this fall. Conductors James DePreist and Imre Palló will lead the orchestras in works by William Schuman, Norman Dello Joio, Richard Mills, and Benjamin Britten on October 18 at New York’s Alice Tully Hall. DePreist is director of conducting and orchestral studies at Juilliard, and newly named artistic advisor to the Pasadena Symphony and Pops in California; Palló is chief of conducting and opera production at the Sydney Conservatorium. It is only the second time Juilliard has joined together with another music school in this way; the first took place in 2005 at the BBC Proms with the London Royal Academy of Music. Juilliard invited the Sydney ensemble to New York following that orchestra’s successful chamber orchestra tour of Europe in fall of 2009.
