Welcome to the home page for The Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College. Located just minutes from the cultural riches of Manhattan on a 76-acre, tree-lined campus, the ACSM combines the advantages of a conservatory with the resources of an outstanding liberal arts college. Our distinguished faculty include award- winning composers, eminent performers, leaders in music education, and scholars whose texts are used nationwide. Our facilities rank with the best in New York City; and our weekly concerts and recitals feature faculty, students and guest artists on an almost daily basis, bringing a true sense of vitality to the Copland School of Music and to the life of our College. Among our many outstanding alumni are Marvin Hamlisch, the Academy Award- and Tony Award-winning composer; Lewis Lockwood and Claude Palisca, noted musicologists; Reri Grist, internationally acclaimed soprano; Claire Brook, senior music editor at W. W. Norton; and Samuel Rhodes, renowned violist and member of the Juilliard String Quartet. These and other distinguished graduates have entered a range of professional careers with the thorough preparation of the ACSM and Queens College as their foundation.
