We had high expectations for the New Dances Julliard presentations. We did not enjoy any of rhe classic or more modern presentations. Although technique is relevant, the shows must be enjoyable by the public. This one was not.

Take advantage of visiting one of the top music schools in the universe. Go to their website and they always have free events going on, whether they are recitals by the students or they have noon concert series at Alice Tully next door. Their student orchestra concerts are generally in the evenings and they are wonderful. If you are a... More

The regular weekly student concerts present excellent quality classical programs and are FREE. The small auditorium is intimate and has excellent acoustics; it is ideal for solo or chamber music. These young people are the next generation who keeps the flame and spirit of classical music alive. Juilliard trained many world-famous musicians. With the foundation of classical training, some pursue... More

Every Wednesday at 1:00pm, Juilliard students perform at Alice Tully Hall. These concerts are open to the public and are free of charge. The standards are incredibly high - higher than many professional performances in other parts of the country. We attended an orchestral performance of a Richard Strauss work paired with Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. It highlighted two young conducting... More

We were fortunate to see a Dance Repertory Performance in the Peter Jay Sharp Theater this past week. The dancers, orchestra and choir were wonderful.

Adjacent to Lincoln center so be sure to not miss if attending any Lincoln Center event just so you can say you were there. Juilliard also has several performances so check out their offerings. Tip: There are occasional free performances by students that are worthy of attendance. Go to Juilliard's website to see events scheduled during your visit.

At $30 a comparatively short but excellent value experience. The music was varied and the young musicians played to a high standard. The hall is modern and perhaps lacks "atmosphere" but enjoyable and recommended. (And the Indie restaurant close by was convenient, efficient and good value too. So much to do at the Lincoln Center - we spent four consecutive... More

If you are in NYC during the "school year" you have to check out free student recitals during the week and every Saturday by the Juilliard Pre-College division. These are some of the finest young musicians in the world and to come to New York and not attend a recital and "take in" the amazing energy of this place is... More

Participation in Julliard evening courses on various music topics is a wonderful experience. The numerous music students, instrument and voice practice wafting through the corridors is enjoyable and an inspiration. The lectures provide excellent music insight for the non musician.

If you were not born in the sixties, this place gives you the chills and thrills. I had the opportunity to watch a ballet performance, which was so enchanting. The place is well organised, no crowds, only real people with a love for the arts. It's a great feeling to stand inside such magnificent ambiance! Some days the shows could... More

Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years.
