Bard Conservatory

The Bard Conservatory offers unparalleled musical opportunities for its students. The Conservatory Orchestra performs regularly on campus, in New York City, and in semiannual concert tours to Asia or Europe. Students frequently perform alongside faculty in chamber music concerts at Bard, in regional chamber music concert series, and in concerts for the Bard Music Festival. Concerto competition winners from the undergraduate instrumental and graduate Vocal Arts Programs perform with either the Bard Conservatory Orchestra or the American Symphony Orchestra.
