Our students are immersed in a live industry environment from the moment they arrive, engaging audiences in their work at every opportunity. They push boundaries, collaborate and create new work across a range of professional and community settings.
In addition to a diverse programme of performances involving students of all disciplines, the College attracts leading international artists, providing opportunities for students to learn up-close from some of the world's most renowned performers. With some of Wales’ most prestigious venues we operate a dynamic arts centre, and our performance programme of world class professionals is integral to students’ training.
The College’s events calendar encompasses over 500 public performances every year including orchestral concerts, recitals, drama, opera and musical theatre. The creative diversity of the College ensures a stimulating environment and broad experience for students of all disciplines.
Our dedicated teachers have a wealth of professional and industry experience, and the College collaborates with a number of high-profile arts organisations, including BBC, Welsh National Opera and visiting artists and directors, to ensure that the unique vocational nature of our training programmes reflect the current practices and conditions of the professional world.
Inspired by the possibilities of performance and creative diversity we champion collaboration and empower excellence in all its forms. Passion and craft entwine with experience and play to elevate, provoke, push and transform.
