BU Carnegie Hall 2022

Soloists and small group performances include seniors and graduate students from BU College of Fine Arts School of Music

Boston, MA – A concert at New York City’s renowned Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall on March 2, 2022 will feature student musicians from Boston University College of Fine Arts (CFA) School of Music. The performance will spotlight a select group of students who participated in a multi-stage competition and selection process run by CFA School of Music.

The performers for the spring 2022 concert were selected after participating in a competition in the fall of 2021, when each applied department within CFA School of Music (Voice, Piano, Strings, Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion) held preliminary auditions open to seniors and graduate student performers. Finalists selected from each department competed before a panel of outside adjudicators, all renowned performing musicians. Finally, a slate of performers and a program were crafted under the curatorship of the Director of the School of Music, Gregory Melchor-Barz and Artistic Director of the initiative, Professor Michelle LaCourse.

These exceptional BU musicians take to the stage that has hosted world-class, top tier soloists and performing groups from prestigious musical organizations who regularly perform in Carnegie’s various concert series.
