The Starling-DeLay Symposium on Violin Studies is dedicated to fostering the legacy of the late renowned teacher Dorothy DeLay. A biennial event, the Symposium takes place at Juilliard and features a distinguished roster of artist-faculty performing recitals, leading master classes, and teaching workshops designed to refine pedagogical skills with a mind-body connection that takes background, social, and mental factors into account.
Preference is given to students currently enrolled in a pre-college, Bachelor's or Master's degree program.
Participation is offered at one of two levels: Participant or Student Artist
Participants accepted into the symposium will observe all master classes and recitals as well as participate in the workshops. Participants are encouraged to bring their instruments for use in the workshops. Preference is given to applicants who are professional violinists or violists, teachers, and postgraduate or college students. Minors (younger than 18) may only be admitted on a space-available basis and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also accepted as a paying participant. No audition is required to apply as a Participant.
Student Artists are selected as performing students for the symposium. Up to 12 student violinists are accepted to perform in public master classes for the artist-faculty and in public recitals in Paul Hall. Student artists may also observe other symposium events as time allows. There is no tuition fee for student artists.
