The Conservatory

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.
