The Conservatory is committed to building a strong and engaged arts community. Our Special Projects provide opportunity for the Conservatory to be a catalyst for inspired practices and unique performing arts opportunities. We hope through building connections between artists in our community and empowering learners and arts educators, we can strengthen our arts community.

The Music & Dance Project
