The USC School of Music has developed an active chamber music program for undergraduate and graduate music students. However, students enrolled in the 128-credit Bachelor of Music degree with emphasis in performance often feel that they cannot participate in chamber music throughout their college careers and still graduate on time. Through careful selection of “concentration” courses and slight revisions in the course requirements of the existing B.M. with emphasis in performance program, we believe that we can provide interested students with a pathway that prepares them for 21st Century careers.
It should be noted that the existing Bachelor of Music with emphasis in performance degree will remain in place to serve students who prefer the traditional degree program.
