Program Details

The US-China Music Institute Summer Academy will bring talented young performers of traditional Chinese instruments, ages 14 to 20, to Bard College for two and a half weeks in August 2018 to rehearse and perform as the Bard Youth Chinese Orchestra (BYCO). The BYCO will play at Bard’s stunning, Frank Gehry-designed Fisher Center for the Performing Arts and at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre. Students will rehearse, study, and play on the beautiful Bard College campus; live and learn English with an American host family; and visit New York City, West Point Military Academy, and Harvard University. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to study and perform Chinese music while being immersed in American culture and society.
