The piano program offers world-class teaching and practice facilities, extensive performance opportunities, and an excellent chamber music faculty. Students can discover their own unique artistic voice with courses in such disciplines as Baroque performance practice; vocal and instrumental collaboration; harpsichord, fortepiano, and organ; and contemporary performance practice.
Students regularly perform solo recitals in the conservatory’s Recital Hall, which has superb acoustics, two Steinway concert grands, and a Bosendorfer Imperial Grand. The piano program presents four recitals each year, two at the Recital Hall and two at the Performing Arts Center on campus. Students are selected to perform in these recitals by the faculty. The Summer Piano Series, an annual public concert series, provides a showcase for our piano students and alumni. Recent series have included students and alumni from the United States, Israel, Russia, Taiwan, Canada, and Macedonia, offering works by Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, de Falla, Tower, Fennimore, and Buzarovski.
