Mount Royal Conservatory: We have a place for you
At the Mount Royal University Conservatory, we believe that the human spirit achieves its truest expression and deepest fulfillment through the arts.
We have played a pivotal role in Calgary’s performing arts scene since 1911, enabling people of all ages and abilities to take part in the performing arts. No other performing arts organization has the history or serves as large and diverse a community. Now the largest institution of our kind in Canada, we are unique in the breadth and scope of our programming.
Our mission is to nurture the artistic potential in everyone, and identify and train the great artists of tomorrow. We teach more than 4,000 students every year and welcome tens of thousands of others from our community to our festivals, concerts and special events.
Sept. 19 to Oct. 3, 2015: Experience the spectacular, with four incredible performances in the phenomenal new Bella Concert Hall! Presenting sponsor: United Active Living Inc.
First concert July 18, 2015: Noah Bendix-Balgley, with Conservatory superstar alumni Teng Li, Shanshan Yao and Wei Yu, and veteran clarinetist Franklin Cohen.
Free and ticketed concerts: On campus and around Calgary throughout the month of July. Check out our complete event schedule.
