UBC has world-class performance facilities and academic courses, as well as large and small ensembles. These include a symphony orchestra, two wind ensembles, and various chamber groups. Previous concerts at the Chan Centre are archived on the school website. Elizabeth Volpé Bligh gives weekly private lessons and also coaches 18 hours of studio classes (small group setting) in which the students receive instruction about all aspects of being a professional harpist. The UBC campus is spectacular.
There are many areas of interest that students can explore at UBC, both within and outside of the Music School. Not only do students prepare to be great performers, but they have options to learn about diverse areas of music, leading to versatility and more career choices. Great visiting artists give master classes every year. UBC is a world-class university blessed with a spectacular campus close to a fabulous city.
