About the Royal Conservatoire
The Royal Conservatoire was founded in 1826. Since the day it was established the link between innovation and tradition has been at the heart of the institute’s activities. Innovation does not come naturally. It is built on tradition. It is the result of establishing educated relationships between traditional views and new ideas. Tried and trusted conventions are naturally cherished, but often also form the point of departure for the urge to innovate. Every day its staff and students dedicate themselves to creating the right climate for both tradition and innovation to thrive.
