The Conservatory’s Graduate Conducting Program, Orchestral and Choral, began in 2010. This two-year master of music degree curriculum is designed and directed by Harold Farberman, James Bagwell, and Leon Botstein. For more information, see "Graduate Programs."
The Postgraduate Collaborative Piano Fellowships of the Bard College Conservatory of Music are awarded to pianists chosen in national auditions.
