    The Academy/Ensemble ACJW
    Exemplary performers, dedicated teachers, and advocates for music, the fellows of The Academy are redefining what it means to be a musician today.

    Created in 2007 by Carnegie Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director Clive Gillinson and The Juilliard School’s President Joseph W. Polisi, The Academy supports the finest postgraduate musicians in developing careers as top-quality performers, innovative programmers, and dedicated teachers who are fully engaged with the communities in which they live and work.

    Fellows of the two-year Academy program—chosen for their musicianship, but also for their leadership qualities and commitment to music education—come from some of the best music schools in the country, including the Curtis Institute of Music, Eastman School of Music, The Juilliard School, Mannes College The New School for Music, New England Conservatory, and Yale School of Music.

    As Ensemble ACJW, the fellows are an inspirational musical collective that has earned accolades from critics and audiences alike for the quality of its performances as well as its fresh and open-minded approach, performing a wide range of music—from centuries past to works written days before an event—in a variety of performance venues. The group performs its own series at Carnegie Hall and regularly appears at Paul Hall at The Juilliard School. As part of a partnership with Skidmore College that began in 2007, Ensemble ACJW gives master classes to university students and performs for the Saratoga Springs community in both concert halls and in informal settings around town.

    In addition to performance opportunities at the highest level, a robust program of professional development is an essential part of The Academy. Fellows partner with New York City public schools to share their artistry with—and become central resources for—music classrooms in the five boroughs. In their second year, they also develop innovative, community-based group projects. Among those produced in recent years were a collaboration with residents of a Bronx family apartment complex, a pen-pal program that paired young students with professional musicians, and a performance of George Crumb’s Voice of the Whale in the American Museum of Natural History’s Millstein Hall of Ocean Life.

    All of these activities make The Academy a dynamic program that is fostering musicians dedicated to making music central to all of our cultural lives. Visit acjw.org to learn more.
