Juilliard Announces 2022-23 Season Programming Featuring More Than 700 Events

Juilliard has announced full programming for its 2022-23 season, including live music, dance, and drama performances at venues throughout the city with numerous livestreams and on-demand opportunities for global audiences to witness the future of the performing arts today. More than ever, audiences are connecting with performances ranging from student recitals to livestreamed productions from Alice Tully Hall via the ongoing online opportunities Juilliard offers. And for local audiences, tickets to all presentations are low-cost or free, making the opportunity to glimpse the artists of the future available for all.

Juilliard celebrates the re-opening of David Geffen Hall this October, with students participating in opening events which will be announced by Lincoln Center at a later date. Additional performances and presentations at Geffen Hall include: students from Juilliard's Preparatory Division (Music Advancement Program and Pre-College) will perform alongside musicians from the New York Philharmonic at the May 6 Young People's Concert in new works composed by the first awardees from Composing Inclusion, a new project between the American Composers Forum, Juilliard, and the New York Philharmonic; and the Juilliard Orchestra will perform John Adams' Harmonielehre at Geffen Hall under David Robertson at the commencement concert on May 18.

"Juilliard is an ever-dynamic and growing institution, always refining and expanding the preparation of our students so that they may thrive and lead the evolving world of the performing arts forward. In that spirit, our new season features new performance opportunities for our music and dance students in outside venues including National Sawdust, Baryshnikov Arts Center, and Merkin Hall, a broadening of our drama curriculum to include film projects written by our playwrights and performed by our students to be screened at Lincoln Center, and new technological space enabling joint performance between our New York and China campuses," said Juilliard President Damian Woetzel. "These opportunities build on the longstanding tradition of student performances at Carnegie Hall and other local venues from churches to jazz clubs, to the excitement of Chelsea Factory which Juilliard helped to open last year, and which now includes our students' participation in the re-opening of David Geffen Hall here at Lincoln Center. Our distinguished faculty and guest artists are excited to work with our students on the upcoming performance season, we hope you will join us."

Tickets to all 2022-23 season events go on sale to the general public on August 30. Member presales start on August 9. Student performances form a significant part of Juilliard's performing arts curriculum, and prices are kept at a minimum. All tickets with the exception of galas and fundraisers are under $40, and many events are free.

Preparatory Division

Under the direction of its dean, Weston Sprott, the Preparatory Division comprises Juilliard's Pre-College program and the Music Advancement Program (MAP), led by artistic director Anthony McGill. MAP is a program for intermediate and advanced music students from New York City's five boroughs and the tristate area who demonstrate a commitment to artistic excellence. MAP actively seeks to include students from diverse backgrounds historically underrepresented in the classical music field, and the 22-23 academic year is the first that will be tuition-free for MAP students due to special funding now in place. Among many highlights, the Composing Inclusion commissioning initiative, with funding from the Sphinx Venture Fund, will present students performing side-by-side with musicians from the New York Philharmonic in Spring 2023 in new chamber works, as well as full orchestral premieres at the Young People's Concert: New Voices at Geffen Hall on May 6. MAP students will also perform in a number of ensemble and recital performances as well as in the MAP chorus.

The Pre-College program provides a conservatory-style curriculum to advanced young musicians from over 10 countries, ages 8 to 18, who exhibit the talent, potential, and ambition to pursue serious music study at the college level. Events next season feature the Pre-College String Orchestra, Pre-College Symphony, and Pre-College Orchestra conducted by David Robertson, Tito Muñoz, Adam Glaser, and Nico Olarte-Hayes. Additional events include Pre-College Percussion Ensemble, Pre-College Choruses and Pre-College Opera Scenes performances. Preparatory Division students and faculty frequently give recitals, which are available to attend in person or stream through the performance calendar on the Juilliard website.


Tickets to 2022-23 events go on sale August 30.

The Juilliard performance calendar at will always have the latest schedule updates for both in-person and streamed performances as well as scheduled premieres for the growing on-demand schedule.

Additional on-demand programs are now available and continually being added through Juilliard LIVE, the new streaming and on-demand initiative launched in April 2021 offering student performances from the college and preparatory divisions. Part of the school's long-term strategic plan, Juilliard LIVE was accelerated when indoor performances were halted due to the pandemic. With a mix of livestreamed and on-demand content, Juilliard LIVE has expanded student performance opportunities and increased accessibility to the performing arts for audiences around the world.

Juilliard will continue to livestream student recitals for the public on its website. Each year, more than 400 student recitals each year including students from both the College and Preparatory divisions.


To be admitted to in-person performances, audience members must have tickets and show proof of vaccination, which will be accepted via any of the following free mobile apps: CLEAR Health Pass (Apple or Android); New York State Excelsior Pass; or the New York City COVID Safe App (Apple or Android). In addition to these apps, a vaccination card along with government-issued photo ID will be accepted, but audiences should be warned that this option may cause delays, and any one of the above apps is strongly preferred.

All performances will take place under Juilliard's stringent health guidelines for the safety of students, faculty, staff, and audience members. Juilliard instruction is fully in-person for the 2022-23 academic year. More information about the 2022-23 safety plan is available on the Juilliard website.
