Peabody Institute


Peabody Institute

The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University is a conservatory and preparatory school located in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland at the corner of Charles and Monument Streets at Mount Vernon Place. The Peabody Conservatory of Music, one of the divisions of the Institute, is one of the leading music conservatories in the USA, boasting a renowned faculty and students from across the globe.

History

Founded in 1857 by philanthropist George Peabody, it was the first academy of music to be established in the United States. Completion of the Grecian-Italian building housing the Institute, designed by Edmund G. Lind, was delayed until 1866 due to the Civil War. [Wierzalis, Bill and Koontz, John P., "Images of America: Mount Vernon Place" (2006) p. 60-61. Arcadia Publishing ISBN 0-7385-4238-5] Under the direction of well-known musicians, composers, conductors, and Peabody alumni, the Institute grew from a local academy to an internationally renowned cultural center throughout the late 19th and the 20th centuries.

Since 1977, the Institute has operated as a division of the Johns Hopkins University, which is popularly thought of as one of America’s top universities. Because of this affiliation, Peabody students are exposed to a liberal arts curriculum that is more extensive than those of other leading conservatories; likewise, Hopkins students have access to a world-class musical education and experience that they normally would not have access to at another university of such stature.

Peabody is one of 156 schools in the U.S. that offer a Doctorate of Musical Arts Degree. It houses two important libraries: the historical George Peabody Library established when the institute opened in 1866, and the Arthur Friedheim Library, a music library includes more than 100,000 books, scores, and sound recordings.

Peabody Children's Chorus

The Peabody Children's chorus is for children ages 6-18. It is divided into 3 groups: Training Choir, Choristers, and Chamber Singers, grouped by age in ascending order. They practice weekly in Towson or Columbia, MD, and sing in concerts biannually, under the instruction of Doreen Falby, Bradley Permenter, and Roriko Osawa. The Chamber Singers, ages 12-18, frequently perform with other groups, such as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Baltimore Choral Arts Society.
