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 Violin Performance; BA Russian Studies
"The whole experience of the liberal arts education really helped me to learn how to think, and it taught me how to think outside of the box. It is important not to limit yourself to just one thing that you are passionate about, and I feel like music and art, especially, really come from other things."
