The Bard College Conservatory Orchestra Celebrates “Stravinsky and His World”

The Bard College Conservatory Orchestra, under music director Leon Botstein, returns to Lincoln Center to celebrate the 24th Bard Music Festival Stravinsky and His World in a program of works by Stravinsky, Shostakovich, and Prokofiev, with violinist Shmuel Ashkenasi, a member of the Bard faculty, as soloist.

Recognized as one of the finest conservatories in the United States, the Bard College Conservatory of Music, founded in 2005, is guided by the principle that musicians should be broadly educated in the liberal arts and sciences. All undergraduates complete two degrees over a five-year period, a bachelor of music and a bachelor of arts in a second field.
