BA Classical Performance

Chamber music and instrumental studies are the focus of the BA programme in classical performance. You will be a part of an international environment characterised by dialogue and openness between student and teachers, with some parts taught in English. During the BA programme, you will be a part of the University of Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra together with students on the Master’s programme. The orchestra has 8-9 major productions each academic year. The classical performance programme collaborates with, among others, the Gothenburg Opera and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, where a majority of the teachers are also active. The Academy of Music and Drama is located in the Artisten building, close to the city’s most important music institutions. With so many fine arts programmes under the same roof, there are excellent opportunities for collaborations with students in composition, musical theatre, opera and other programmes.

This programme is taught in English.
