Juilliard School

Received an email from https://www.lincolncenter.org/lincoln-center-at-home, only to discover the myriad of events available at the Juilliard School. Prices are reasonable and school related programs are often free with the students giving world class performance. The Juilliard box office is open 10-6, and some tickets are available on line. The School and stages are adjacent to Lincoln Center on 65th St.

On this evening for a mere $20., I delighted in a performance by an ensemble of 20 for over 2 hours. The music was Latin/Cuban and amazing! Their guest conductor, Jose Madera, was a man with a lengthy c.v. of jazz related experiences and credentials. If in the area pick up a calendar of events at the school.

The event was also available on line, and information can be obtained on the website. https://www.lincolncenter.org/lincoln-center-at-home.

And who knows who’ll you recognize in later years. When I was doing psychiatric nursing at St. Luke’s Hospital in NYC, a young student named Jon Batiste, and his fellow Juilliard students played for our patients.
