Oberlin Stage Left

Oberlin Stage Left logoThere's one stage left—and we're making the most of it! Since April 2020, Oberlin Conservatory has been producing a series of online programs featuring our faculty and students, as well as fascinating guests from around the globe.

Broadcasts of the Conservatory's large ensembles—Oberlin Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Contemporary Music Ensemble, and Sinfonietta—take place every Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. These performances, and others featuring students in our Jazz Division, the Oberlin Baroque Orchestra, and small ensembles, are available for viewing afterwards in Backstage Pass.

Special Stage Left programs with our faculty and guest performers and panelists are available on Oberlin Stage Left: On Demand following those broadcasts.
