Who studies at SFCM?

In 2019-20, SFCM had an enrollment of 461 Collegiate students, 160 of whom graduated with a Bachelor of Music, Master of Music, or Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate. We are proud that SFCM continues to be the most diverse of any conservatory in the country. Among Collegiate students, voice and strings are the two most popular areas of study.

How do we share music?

SFCM students, faculty, and visiting artists shared music with more than 40,000 audience members—more than any year before—through in-person performances at 50 Oak Street and virtual performances during shelter-in-place. Outside our walls, SFCM students gave more than 275 performances at galas, weddings, and other events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

SFCM student teaching in schools

How do we engage the community?

1,683 people with limited access to music experienced 55 performances by SFCM students in schools, hospitals, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and other San Francisco Bay Area locations.

About 2,600 K-12 students attending local public schools and after-school programs benefited from the music instruction and mentorship of SFCM students and recent alumni. When the pandemic began, we moved our programs online to continue to safely educate young musicians.

Have you seen our new home for music?

In 2019-20, SFCM continued construction of the Ute and William K. Bowes, Jr. Center for Performing Arts, our new residential housing, education and performance facility that opened to students in October 2020. Located at 200 Van Ness Avenue, the Bowes Center expands SFCM’s existing campus in the heart of the Civic Center and is already transforming our students’ educational experience.
