Our student-led tours offer an insider’s guide to our concert halls, libraries, and residence hall with a look into the unique community of teachers and students that make up our school.
Each academic year features more than 600 performances by our classical and jazz orchestras, chamber ensembles, jazz combos, and our opera studio as well as faculty and student recitals.
Master classes are also held by internationally renowned artists who coach our students in a variety of repertoire. Many of these events are free and open to the public and don’t require tickets or reservations. Check our calendar for dates and see you soon!
