As part of a broad mission to expand its leadership position in the 21st century, The Juilliard School has embarked upon an ambitious plan to open access to its expertise on a global scale through interrelated site based initiatives. Activities in the People’s Republic of China are an important part of this plan.
The Tianjin Juilliard School (TJS) is an innovative branch campus initiative within this global mission. Over the past five years, the Juilliard administration and its visionary partners in Tianjin have worked together to bring this project from its initial concert, to the important milestone of receiving preliminary approval from the Ministry of Education, to the current, active planning of the school, so that its first class students can be welcomed Fall 2019. Through a combination of highly selective graduate and pre-college programs, community-based open enrollment courses, and robust performances in a state-of-the-art facility, TJS has the potential to become a new educational and cultural landmark in the Asia-pacific region.
