The School of Music at Boston University, founded in 1872, is the oldest degree granting music program in the United States. The character of the School is shaped by its position at the center of a major university situated in the heart of Boston, a city that takes learning and music seriously. Eben Tourgee, the first dean of the School, set the course that still holds today. He believeed that the study of liberal arts "enables students to more intelligently interpret and perform the works of the masters, render their services as instructors more valuable, and qualify them to do far more towards elevating the art to its true position in the estimation of the public." Alumni and faculty are members of major symphony orchestras, opera companies and prestigious ensembles throughout the world. Notable faculty include opera singer Phyllis Curtin, composer, conductor Lukas Foss, and violinist Roman Totenberg. Notable alumni include Fred Bronstein, president of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra; opera singer Dominique LaBelle; and Ikuko Mizuno-Spire, violinist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
