Why I Chose Bard
BM Bassoon Performance; BA Biology
"I chose Bard Conservatory because I love the double-degree program. I have always dreamed of studying science, and when I started playing bassoon, I knew that I couldn’t choose one over the other. Here, I can study both of my passions."
BM Trombone Performance; BA German Studies
"I wouldn't be an artist if I didn't go to Bard. Bard gives you a lot of skills, many which you might not necessarily recognize at the time. But, the knowledge, skills, and challenge of the program, these all allow you to be able to step out of your comfort zone and really push yourself. I am very thankful for my education and to Bard for broadening my perspective."
