Festival Connect

In 2021, Tianjin Juilliard launched Festival Connect, the School’s flagship music festival which takes place annually and highlights a different groundbreaking 20th-century composer every year, tracing their legacy and influence on contemporary music. The inaugural festival focused on Bartók, with performances supplemented by pre-concert talks, panel discussions, master classes, and visual art that reflected Bartók’s interest in traditional folk music and Eastern culture.

Tianjin Chamber Music Festival

Since 2019, Tianjin Juilliard has co-organized an annual chamber music festival in partnership with the Tianjin Grand Theater, where select students, faculty, and guest artists are invited to perform together.

Students

Performance is the core of the Tianjin Juilliard School experience. In addition to participating in the Tianjin Juilliard Orchestra, the Tianjin Juilliard String Orchestra, the Tianjin Juilliard Wind Orchestra and Chamber Music Ensembles, students collaborate and perform alongside resident faculty, visiting faculty, world renowned conductors, and soloists. Led by conductors from China and abroad, the Tianjin Juilliard Orchestra presents up to 8 concerts each season, performing a diverse repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary orchestral works as well as unique pieces featuring traditional Chinese instruments. Every season, our students share their musical gifts with the local community as they embark on an extraordinary musical journey. Through their music, you will also witness their hopes, vitality, and growth into future leaders of the arts.
