Juilliard’s full-scholarship Historical Performance programme offers comprehensive study and performance of music from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries on period instruments. Established and endowed in 2009 by the generous support of Bruce and Suzie Kovner, the programme is open to candidates for the Master of Music, Graduate Diploma and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees. A high-profile concert season of opera, orchestral and chamber music is augmented by a performance-oriented curriculum that fosters an informed understanding of the many issues unique to period-instrument performance at the level of technical excellence and musical integrity for which Juilliard is renowned. The faculty comprises many of the leading performers and scholars in the field. Frequent collaborations with Juilliard’s Ellen and James S Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts, the integration of modern-instrument majors outside of the Historical Performance programme, and national and international tours have introduced new repertoires and increased awareness of historical performance practice at Juilliard and beyond. Alumni of Juilliard Historical Performance are members of many of the leading period-instrument ensembles, including the Portland Baroque Orchestra, Les Arts Florissants, Mercury and Tafelmusik, as well as launching such new ensembles as the Sebastians, House of Time, New York Baroque Incorporated and New Vintage Baroque.
