Bard Conservatory Preparatory Division

When the leaves fall and the weather turns colder, that means it’s time for our Annual Free Family Concert with the Bard Conservatory Preparatory Division! Families and children of all ages are welcome. There will be apples for snacks and kids can sit up front (there will be rugs and pillows!) for the best views of performances by the Prep Division faculty, including the artists pictured here, and their talented students.
