This is where musical excellence gets defined
For nearly a century, we have been known for our excellence in performance, artistry, and collaboration—but most of all, for our belief in the inherent value of a creative life.
We have helped launch the careers of countless performers, scholars, and music educators who have become leaders around the globe.
Our more than 1,500 students come from all 50 states and as many as 55 countries. Each one benefits from the intensity and focus of a world-class conservatory combined with the broad academic offerings of a major university.
