Peabody's Campaign: Musicians as Leaders

For decades, the Peabody Institute has been regarded as the best of the best. Now we have the opportunity to shine even brighter as a national model for educating arts leaders and inspire stronger and bolder community engagement in the arts. Now is the time for the oldest conservatory in the country to launch the most ambitious transformation of music education in our nation’s history.

At the heart of all we are doing lies our conviction that Peabody, thanks to its distinguished and dedicated faculty, as well as a curriculum of  extraordinary breadth and depth, is superbly prepared to expand and transform conservatory education so that it speaks directly to the challenges and opportunities inherent in the 21st century musical  landscape.
