Welcome

art of spring choral performance

The Barnard Music Program provides the vocal program for the university, which includes the Barnard-Columbia Chorus and Chamber Choir, solo studio voice lessons and three limited-enrollment vocal classes, Technique in Singing, the Vocal Repertoire Class and  Worldmuse.  There are two opera companies in residence, Opera Hispanica and the Brooklyn Opera Theater which present on-campus performances in the fall and spring.   The program provides a music history course, Introduction to Music, which is a year-long survey of Western European art music from sixth-century Gregorian Chant to the work of living composers; the course fulfills the Fine and Performing Arts requirement of the General Education Requirements and serves as a pre-requisite for the music major. An additional option is an undergraduate major in ethnomusicology.  Students may complete a senior project in music repertoire by presenting an hour-long recital, or may write a fifty-page thesis project in music research. The successful student will gain professional level performance skills though studio lessons and the theory and ear training sequence, and gain a comprehensive knowledge of  music history from the courses in historical musicology and ethnomusicology provided by the Music Department at Columbia University.
