Student Activities


The Student Government Association (SGA) serves as the unified voice of the student body to encourage and facilitate communication across divisions and the greater Boston Conservatory community. In recognition of its responsibility to the students at The Boston Conservatory, SGA strives to improve the quality of student life academically, socially, and artistically by addressing student needs and concerns and providing fiscal support to student clubs and organizations.

Student Clubs/Organizations

Student-run clubs and organizations offer excellent opportunities to gain skills including interpersonal communication, problem-solving, decision-making and leadership skills. These life-long skills will enhance both the professional and personal lives of students. 

Student clubs and organizations are created by students with common interests and supported fiscally by the SGA. Any student group desiring to become a club or organization is welcomed to apply through the SGA

The following clubs and organizations are available at The Boston Conservatory:

BoCo Cares

BoCo Cares is dedicated towards raising awareness and funds for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative. 

BoCo Improv Club

The Improv Club provides students with an out-of-class opportunity to learn the art of improvisation.

EarthStone Theatre Company

EarthStone provides students with opportunities to perform in student-driven theater productions. 

The Garden

The Garden is both the name of an annual literary journal of work by Conservatory students and the name of the club that promotes literary life on campus. Members of The Garden plan and organize a series of evening Open Mic events, called NAKED TONGUES. These events often include visiting poets and performers, reading of creative writing by students, and free food and drink. Editors for The Garden are sought from all three divisions and from different years to make the journal as representative as possible. The journal is published in late April and given out at a final Coffee House event at the end of the year. 

National Association for Music Education

Collegiate Chapters of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) are active throughout the US and abroad. The Conservatory chapter provides opportunities for all students to be involved with the professional organization for music educators, and receive benefits such as the monthly national journal and the quarterly Massachusetts Music Educators Association (MMEA) state journal. All students interested in music education and the teaching of music are encouraged to join and contribute to the chapter. Semester activities include creating projects, presenting guest speakers and workshops, attending the MMEA All-State conference, participating in outreach activities, and learning to use various online music education resources.

New Ground

New Ground is The Boston Conservatory's solitary playwriting program. As a resident theatre company run by students, we strive to cultivate new works through workshops, staged readings, and fully-realized productions. Our mission is to provide young writers with the resources they need in order to bring their ideas to life, through an encouraging and productive creative process. New Ground welcomes submissions of new works from students of all departments. 

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is open to all male students at the Boston Conservatory. This Brotherhood was founded in Boston in 1898 for “the development of the best and truest fraternal spirit, the mutual welfare and brotherhood of musical students, the advancement of music in America, and a loyalty to the Alma Mater.” The Fraternity, which currently has over 80,000 living members, seeks to advance music by developing fraternal relationships between musical students and supporting schools of music throughout the country.
