Joye in Aiken

The 11th annual Joye in Aiken Performing Arts Festival and Education Outreach Program brings the world’s finest young musicians, actors and dancers to the charming, historic city of Aiken. Students, faculty and alumni of Juilliard travel to Aiken every March for this community-wide event. The outreach program offers local students an opportunity to attend classes and performances by this talented group. Performances are also available to the public. Joye in Aiken, founded in 2009 under the name Juilliard in Aiken, is a non-profit organization dedicated to making the very best in the performing arts available to as many of our citizens as possible, especially students.

Joye in Aiken is named for Joye Cottage, a beautiful Gilded Age mansion that serves as a place of retreat and renewal for the artists who participate in our Festival and Outreach Program. The name is meant to honor the central role that Joye Cottage has played in our history, while suggesting the nature of the program itself, which has brought boundless joy to thousands of adults and children. Concert and performance schedule available here.
