Juilliard in Aiken Festival celebrates fifth season

More than 40 Juilliard students, faculty and alumni will present public performances, master classes, workshops and in-school performances during the Juilliard in Aiken performing arts festival, scheduled for March 9-15. The 2013 event celebrates the fifth season of this unique partnership with Juilliard, one of the world’s premier performing arts conservatories. Aiken is the first and only community in the world with which Juilliard has partnered to create a festival of this magnitude.

Highlights of this year’s festival include the return of popular artists Paul Jacobs, considered the world’s leading organist and a Grammy winner; Charles Yang, a crossover violinist described by the Boston Globe as having the “charisma of a rock star;” and the dynamic piano duo Anderson and Roe.
