2021 Commencement Ceremony

May 8, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.

This year's virtual commencement ceremony will be a celebration of the class of 2021's time at the Conservatory culminating in the conferral of degrees, including our honorary degree recipients Chita Rivera and André Watts.

Access to the livestream will be available to students and guests prior to May 8, and will also be available on demand following the conclusion of the event. A program listing all graduates’ names will also be available prior to the ceremony on the commencement webpage.

Boston Conservatory is also pleased to announce that plans are underway to convene divisional in-person events, pending the continued easing of state and city COVID-19 restrictions. We will email students as details become available, and also plan to live stream these events so those who are unable to attend can still participate virtually.
