Ohio’s Conservatories of Music: Baldwin Wallace University’s Conservatory of Music

By | Ohio's Conservatories of Music | No Comments

Baldwin Wallace University is one of our favorites among Ohio’s private Universities and it doesn’t hurt that they are the home to one of Ohio’s five Conservatories of Music. The Conservatory is composed of three buildings connected by the Boesel Musical Arts Center. They are known for their Music Theatre program, “All Steinway” status, and their role as host of the oldest collegiate Bach festival in the U.S., among other things. BWU’s Conservatory offers a wide range of performance majors as well as Music Composition, Music Education, Music History, Music Theatre, Music Theory, and Music Therapy. If you are visiting conservatories in Ohio, don’t miss this one!

Ohio’s Big 5 Liberal Arts Colleges: Oberlin College and Conservatory

Oberlin College, one of Ohio’s “Big 5” liberal arts colleges, was founded in 1833 and was the first college in America to admit students of color and the first to grant degrees to women in a coed program. Today, many of Oberlin’s students still “bleed for a cause.” They are liberal, academically capable, and focused on making a difference in the world.

Located 35 miles southwest of Cleveland, Oberlin enrolls 2,300 students in its highly ranked College of Arts and Sciences and another 600 in its prestigious Conservatory of Music. Oberlin is a true liberal arts college as professional programs are essentially non-existent. Instead, students immerse themselves in the humanities (particularly languages and cultures), social sciences, and the sciences. Many double major and all enjoy significant interdisciplinary study. Some take advantage of research opportunities supported by faculty.

The campus is beautiful, students are busy, and there is plenty to do. Of course, all this doesn’t come cheap. Oberlin is the 9th most expensive college in the country although, like others, they commit significant resources to providing students scholarships to reduce their cost and encourage their enrollment.
