Through a unique mix of professional and pre-professional programs, Bay View celebrates, encourages and educates.  A music conservatory exists on campus to study the performing arts in conjunction with the Bay View Music Festival. Patrons will find an exciting blend of returning faculty and talented newcomers, all seamlessly woven together for an enriching evening of vocal and instrumental music for the whole family.
