In addition to on-campus performance opportunities, Juilliard also collaborates with several partners to produce performances around New York City and beyond. Meet our collaborative partners here:

Each year since 2007, Juilliard Historical Performance has welcomed William Christie (“the eminence grise of Juilliard’s ambitious Historical Performance program” –The New Yorker) and musicians from the Paris-based period-instrument ensemble Les Arts Florissants for intensive, repertoire-focused residencies. Juilliard students benefit from individual lessons, masterclasses, and public concerts, while Les Arts Florissants continues to cultivate its international presence.

Every August the festival Dans les Jardins de William Christie welcomes promising students and alumni from Juilliard Historical Performance to perform alongside musicians from Les Arts Florissants and its young artist training programs, Le Jardin des Voix and Les Arts Flo Juniors. Together, they perform outdoor concerts in and around the magnificent gardens of William Christie’s home in the Vendée region of France. Watch a clip of the festival here.

In addition to a monetary award, Fellows benefit from coaching, lessons, and master classes with English Concert musicians, including its music director Harry Bicket, and from performances on their own and with The English Concert.
