The László Z. Bitó '60 Conservatory Building
The Bard College Conservatory of Music has received a generous $9.2 million gift from Bard alumnus László Z. Bitó, class of 1960, for the construction of The László Z. Bitó ’60 Conservatory Building. This state-of-the-art teaching and performance facility addresses the growing needs of the Conservatory, brought on by its fivefold growth since its founding in 2005. The design of the building, by Deborah Berke & Partners Architects in New York City, supports the Conservatory’s dedication to providing top-level musical training in the context of a liberal arts education.
