The '''Bard College Conservatory of Music''' is a program of [[Bard College]] in [[Annandale-on-Hudson, New York]]. Founded in 2005, the program is unique among [[music conservatories]] in the United States in that all undergraduate students are required to participate in a five-year dual-degree program, in which both a B.M. in music and a B.A. in a subject other than music are obtained. The Conservatory has an exceptional faculty, many of whom teach at other conservatories such as the [[Juilliard School]] and the [[Curtis Institute of Music|Curtis Institute]]. Undergraduate faculty teach the standard orchestral/chamber music instruments and composition. The Conservatory also offers two graduate programs, the [[Graduate Vocal Arts Program]] and the [[Graduate Conducting Program]], in addition to a Preparatory Division and [[The Conductor's Institute]].
