By providing exemplary arts education programs to the community and encouraging its students to serve as advocates for the arts in society, The Tianjin Juilliard School will take an active role in shaping the future of the performing arts. The campus will provide hundreds of teachers and students with an inspiring learning environment, and it will also open its doors to welcome the public for engagement in music and art.  

People can walk into this open and bright central hall of the campus, take in the artistic atmosphere, browse the music bookstore, and make a stop at the cafes. They can also follow the open steps to the ground floor to experience the seamless integration of digital technology and classical music—through the innovative exhibition space, “Juilliard Imagination.”  

In the evening, the inviting space of the public lobby will greet music lovers from near and far. Visitors can enjoy performances presented by talented students, resident faculty, guest teachers, world-class soloists, ensembles, and symphony orchestras. The Tianjin Juilliard School will offer more than 150 performances to the public each year, making this architectural gem a focus of music life in Tianjin, Beijing, and across East Asia.
