Juilliard to stream season-opening concerts in September

Posted on: September 9, 2021

The Juilliard School will offer free live streams of all its September performances, beginning with a September 10 concert featuring Barbara Hannigan conducting the Juilliard Orchestra in Haydn’s Symphony No. 90 and Stravinsky’s complete Pulcinella ballet score, featuring soloists from Juilliard’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts. William Short will lead the Juilliard Wind Orchestra in Mozart’s Serenade No. 10 (“Gran Partita”) on September 19; collaborative pianist Lydia Brown will perform a September 21 faculty recital; the Juilliard Jazz Orchestra will perform “Juilliard Jazz Commissions With Bebop Legends,” featuring five commissions inspired by bebop artists conducted by Tim Armacost, on September 25; and Joel Sachs will lead the New Juilliard Ensemble in world premieres by Xiaogang Ye, Will Stackpole, Evan Anderson, and Marc Migó on September 28. While Juilliard instruction is fully in-person this academic year, live audiences for September events will consist only of students, faculty, and staff who are authorized to be on campus. Tickets will not be available to the general public, but September performances can be viewed for free on juilliard.edu/live. In spring of 2021, more than 275 recitals were livestreamed and Juilliard released more than two dozen on-demand performances, which remain available.
