Juilliard and Beyond: A Life in Music

CBS News

It has been called “the most prestigious trade school in the world.” It has been recognized for the most rigorous scholastic competition among its students. It is New York’s Juilliard School. CBS News put together a first-rate team of Perry Wolff, executive producer; Shareen Blair Brysac, producer/director; and the able Charles Kuralt as narrator. This exceptional group then, themselves, put together a program which examined the classical differences between Greek and Roman education, as exemplified in the Juilliard approach to educational excellence. The result was not really a solution, but was more of a re-examination. Nonetheless, the program clearly accomplished what it set out to do. For such an exceptionally well-done look at a fascinating, but seldom explored area, a Peabody Award.
