Juilliard’s woodwind department enjoys an outstanding reputation, attracting talented young musicians from around the world. The department’s faculty members include distinguished soloists and principal chair holders in the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and Orchestra of St. Luke’s, as well as the members of the New York Woodwind Quintet, one of three resident ensembles at Juilliard.
As a woodwind student at Juilliard, you will work closely with our dedicated faculty members and enjoy ample performance opportunities. Concerto competitions are held for each instrument on a rotating basis, and winners perform with the Juilliard Orchestra at Alice Tully Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Carnegie Hall, or the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. You can also participate in Juilliard’s annual ChamberFest series and join one or more of the School’s numerous orchestras, chamber groups, and new music ensembles. Last but not least, you can gain valuable interactive performance experience by participating in one of Juilliard’s educational or community outreach programs.
