Juilliard Virtual Gala

Monday, October 5, 2020 7pm EDT

We hope you were able to join us virtually to celebrate the boundless imagination and creativity that is Juilliard, reimagined for our Virtual Gala. We welcome you to learn more about the premiere here.

Our students are doing the extraordinarypivoting in this moment and creating new paradigms of artistic innovation and collaboration. Wherever we may be in the world, our community has stayed connected. This special occasion honored the talent across our music, dance, and drama divisions and featured appearances by alumni artists.

More than 90 percent of our college students qualify for and receive financial aid, so the proceeds from this, our only gala in 2020, are directed to the Juilliard Scholarship Fund. Your support of this event will help ensure the education of the next generation of performing artists.
