The Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance with Emphasis in Opera or Music Theatre prepares students for a career on stage, combining the Conservatory curriculum with a sequence of theatre courses. As a result, the aspiring vocal performer is provided theatrical stage techniques, in conjunction with vocal and general music skills. Students enrolled in this major receive private vocal study, including jazz and pop voice, dance and other academically based music courses such as music theatre history.

In addition, our students are encouraged to participate in the multiple stage productions presented by the university’s theatre department each year.
