The Bard College Conservatory of Music, founded in 2005, is guided by the principle that musicians should be broadly educated in the liberal arts and sciences to achieve their greatest potential. All undergraduates complete two degrees over a five-year period: a bachelor of music and a bachelor of arts in a field other than music. The Conservatory Orchestra has performed twice at Lincoln Center and has completed three international concert tours: in June 2012 to China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan; in June 2014 to Russia and six cities in Central and Eastern Europe; and in June 2016 to three cities in Cuba.
The Bard College Conservatory Orchestra will perform with The Orchestra Now on May 9 & 10, 2020. Members of the orchestra previously performed with TŌN on Apr 6 & 7, 2019; Apr 14 & 15, 2018; Apr 8 & 9, 2017; and May 8, 2016.
