Closely associated with the area’s top opera and choral performance organizations, AC’s vocal program features a highly committed, genuinely engaged, world-class faculty. Instrumental students at AC work with top-flight faculty, too. Students of woodwinds, brass, strings, percussion, guitar, and piano all discover exceptional study and performance opportunities at AC.
