Levine Concert Appearance Cancelled; President Polisi and Dean Guzelimian Issue Statement

The School responds to the recent news regarding James Levine

To the Members of the Juilliard Community,

The Juilliard Orchestra has a scheduled collaborative concert with the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program on February 23, 2018, which was to be conducted by James Levine. In light of recent reports, Mr. Levine will no longer be conducting the concert. We are now actively searching for a conductor to take over the concert.

The Juilliard School is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all members of the community. Sexual misconduct is a violation of trust that can never be tolerated. Our hearts go out to the individuals who have physically and psychologically suffered from acts of sexual misconduct.

Joseph W. Polisi, President

Ara Guzelimian, Provost and Dean
