The U C Berkeley Department of Music, established in 1905, is one of the oldest and most prominent in the country. Here, the serious student, both undergraduate and graduate, can undertake a program of study that balances composition, musical scholarship, and performance in a liberal arts setting (within the College of Letters and Science) and is grounded in the resources of a major research university. The department has assembled a faculty of eminent scholars, composers, and performers and houses a world-famous research library (Hargrove), excellent instrument collections (Salz and O'Neill), and a major composition facility (CNMAT). Campus studies take place against the backdrop of the Bay Area's rich musical life: its diverse array of performing organizations reflects a complete spectrum of musical activity, a sampling of which includes the world-renowned San Francisco Opera, the Oakland Ballet, the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, the Ali Akbar College of Music, numerous venues for performance of a wide range of musics from around the world, as well as a panoply of popular music and great jazz venues such as Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, Kimball's in Emeryville, and Yoshi's in Oakland.
