- Bachelor of Music (BM)

We develop young singers through vocal coaching, diction and language, pedagogy classes, and operatic, song, and chamber music study. Students will gain confidence, performance acumen, auditioning skills, and artistry across a broad repertoire. Voice students have many performance opportunities including fully staged opera productions presented in original languages, choral ensembles, and solo appearances with instrumental ensembles. We prepare students for exceptional careers in opera, oratorio, recital, early music, and the music of today. Qualified advanced students may earn the Artist Diploma in vocal studies.
Oberlin Opera Theater presents two major productions with orchestra each year. Small-scale operas are presented in nontraditional venues during winter term. Recent main-stage productions have included Le nozze di Figaro, Cendrillon, Street Scene, and The Rape of Lucretia. Students enrolled in opera classes also present performances of opera scenes each semester.
