Be the foundation of excellence.
Lay a deep, expressive foundation for Conservatory ensembles.
SFCM's double bass department has fewer than 15 students under the instruction of two faculty professors, the principal and assistant principal of the San Francisco Symphony. Students can perform with resident ensembles such as the Conservatory Orchestra and chamber groups from the baroque to the contemporary, as well as enter the annual String Concerto Competition.
Teaching that resonates.
SFCM changed global music education in 2020 by acquiring management company Opus3 Artists, home to over 250 top musicians. Masterclasses, recording sessions, and side-by-sides with members of the Opus 3 roster are only the beginning of our work together to invent the future of performances.
