Why study Vocal Performance at Yale?

November 4, 2023

The Yale Institute of Sacred Music is now accepting applications for graduate programs in vocal performance, which includes early music, art song and oratorio. All admitted students receive a scholarship for full tuition and a generous living stipend. View a video about why you should consider studying at the ISM.

Designed for the singer whose interests lie principally in the fields of early music, oratorio, art song, contemporary music, and vocal chamber ensembles, the program at Yale leads to the M.M., M.M.A., or D.M.A. degree. It is designed to enhance and nurture the artistry of young singers by developing in them a secure technique, consummate musicianship, and stylistic versatility through instruction in performance practice and comprehensive performance experience. Our students have the unique opportunity to sing music spanning a thousand years, from Gregorian chant to newly commissioned pieces.
