Interactive Concerts and Fellowships

Gluck Community Service Fellowship

The Gluck Community Service Fellowship Program (G.S.C.F.) presents more than 450 interactive Dance, Drama, Classical Music, and Jazz performances at more than 45 New York City health care facilities each academic year. G.C.S.F. Fellows (student-initiated groups) present a minimum of 12 performances each year, free of charge to metropolitan hospitals, nursing homes, and alternative care facilities. The Juilliard students’ experiences in the Gluck Community Service Fellowship Program inform their performing careers and support the development of a personal commitment to community service.

Young People’s Concert Series

Five times a year, approximately 200 fourth grade students from N.Y.C. partner schools travel to Juilliard to attend a 45-minute interactive concert presented by a chamber group or small ensemble of Juilliard students. These concerts, known as Juilliard’s Young People’s Concert (Y.P.C.) series, develop children’s listening skills and offer Juilliard student performers an opportunity to build their interactive performance skills while sharing their art with the community. The schoolchildren are prepared for these concerts by Juilliard Concert Fellows who visit their classrooms before and after each performance. If interested in performing for young children, speak with a staff member in Community Engagement.

McCabe Guitar Fellowship

The Norma Galblay McCabe Guitar Fellowship enables Juilliard students to introduce classical guitar to young audiences as artists and educators. McCabe Fellows organize a performance or master class at a New York City partner school; present a Young People’s Concert at Juilliard; perform interactive concerts for the children in the CLIMB program; and collaborate with Morse Fellows to present a lesson for school children.

Dance Masterworks

The Dance Masterworks program is an hourlong performance with interactive elements designed to introduce New York City elementary school children to celebrated contemporary and classical modern dance repertory.

Performing Educational Programs for Schools (PEPS): Dance

Performing Educational Programs for Schools: Dance presents interactive dance performances to students at New York City schools. Juilliard dance students enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with schools interested in bringing dance to their students. This program is offered annually in late May and early June.
