Over the course of the twentieth century, many of New York's leading educational institutions experienced brief, incandescent peaks that helped to define their missions, aspirations and identities: City College in the 1930s and 1940s, the Actor's Studio in the 1940s and 1950s, Columbia University in the turbulent 1960s.

Over the course of the twentieth century, many of New York's leading educational institutions experienced brief, incandescent peaks that helped to define their missions, aspirations and identities: City College in the 1930s and 1940s, the Actor's Studio in the 1940s and 1950s, Columbia University in the turbulent 1960s. The Juilliard School has maintained an environment of just such legendary activity, creativity, and notoriety ever since it was founded as a music conservatory, in 1905, to provide American musicians training to rival that of their European counterparts. One hundred years later, Juilliard is still the country's premier conservatory, offering also world-class education in theater and dance (including some celebrated but controversial classes for precocious teens and pre-teens), and is one of the central reasons why American achievement in the performance arts now surpasses, rather than lagging behind, Europe. Juilliard stages over 500 first-rate performances in every conceivable discipline each school year, admitting the public for free or at unimaginably cut-rate prices. It's hard to believe the ticket rates, harder to believe these are still students.
