The Boston Conservatory was initially founded by violinist and composer Julius Eichberg in 1867. Located in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston, the conservatory sought to provide music education to community residents and those seeking professional training alike. In addition, the Boston Conservatory was one of the earliest to accept both African Americans and women into its ranks - culminating Eichberg's operetta, "The Doctor of Alcontara" being performed by the first African-American opera company in the U.S. in 1873. Since its beginnings, the Boston Conservatory has evolved to include education in dance and theater along with its renowned music program.
According to its mission statement, the Boston Conservatory works to "prepare and inspire our students to perform at the highest level in their art and in their lives. We foster their creativity and give them courage. We teach them the skills that will lead to professional and personal fulfillment."
