The music department at UB has developed an internationally recognized niche for the creation and performance of new music. It also has a long legacy for the performance of chamber music. Performance study at UB provides a strong focus in both of these areas within the context of traditional instrumental and vocal training. The strong contemporary music presence and distinguished musicology and theory faculty ensure a lively, interdisciplinary community of composers, performers, and scholars. UB is home to the June in Buffalo festival and conference, a leading international forum for the presentation and exchange of contemporary music and musical ideas
A premier, research-intensive public university dedicated to academic excellence, UB is the largest and most comprehensive campus in the 64-campus SUNY system.
