Master of Music in Voice Performance


Program Overview

Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s voice performance master's program prepares students for vibrant careers in music through specialized performance and audition training, a broad range of opportunities to perform publicly and refine musicianship, and focused studies in career building and entrepreneurship. 

Performance opportunities are plentiful at the Conservatory. In addition to solo and studio recitals, voice graduate students participate and act as leaders in fully staged operas, concert operas, operas for young audiences, choral ensembles, contemporary music ensembles, chamber music recitals, and many more. Off campus, voice graduate students are encouraged to involve themselves in Greater Boston’s various opera, oratorio, and chamber music organizations, including Boston Opera Collaborative, Opera on Tap Boston, Emmanuel Music, The Bach Institute, and various church soloist and choir opportunities, to name a few.

Throughout the program, students work closely with esteemed faculty members in private lessons to hone their artistic skills and build on their vocal technique in order to prepare for professional and semi-professional auditions and engagements. Students are therefore expected to expand their audition and performance repertoire, compile professional materials, and begin to clearly articulate their career goals. Meanwhile, students have regular exposure to high-profile artists performing with the nearby Boston Lyric Opera or Boston Symphony Orchestra. These guest artists give master classes to Conservatory students that offer supplemental artistic guidance and career advice.
