PERFORMING ARTS AND COURSES
Bocconi University organizes creative workshops, cultural activities and extra-curricular initiatives to give participants a chance to express their creativity and artistic abilities.

In the first semester 2023/24, Campus Life, in collaboration with Yamaha Music Europe, organizes a choral singing course.
The choral activity is open to all students, without any distinction between those who are in tune and those who are not, and includes specific activities divided into various moments. Ample space is reserved for vocal training, with activities aimed at promoting the correct functioning of the muscles involved in singing and, consequently, the correct emission of the voice.

A soundproof room available free of charge, upon reservation.
The newly renovated Music Room, made possible in cooperation with Yamaha, will open again on 21 September 2023. We look forward to seeing you there from 4pm to 8pm!
