Mount Royal Conservatory is now in its new home in the Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts!

TCPA_locationThe Conservatory has moved into its new home! The Conservatory offices and classrooms are now located in the Taylor Centre for Performing Arts on the east side of campus.

Please note, the old Conservatory offices, located in W302, are now closed.



On Saturday, Jan. 24 we opened our doors to the public and we were thrilled by your response.

Construction was continuing but we were excited to show Calgary our progress to date. Hundreds of you toured our innovative teaching and early childhood spaces, checked out the spectacular Bella Concert Hall, and heard samplings of choral, speech arts and musical performances.

We were overwhelmed by your enthusiasm for our new space and the positive feedback we received. Check out just some of the buzz surrounding our open house:

Remember, this is YOUR community performing arts centre!

A century of excellence

An original program of Mount Royal, the Conservatory has shared in the institution’s dedication to exceptional learning and academic success for 100 years. From Mount Royal’s earliest days, the Conservatory’s holistic performing arts programming has nurtured the artistic and creative potential of generations of students. From the concert stage to the board room, Conservatory graduates are leaders in their fields.

From that proud history we now look forward to our future: construction continues on the new Conservatory facility and its centerpiece, the Bella Concert Hall.

Serving our community

Our new building allows us to meet the needs of our community with new instructional spaces for private lessons, rehearsal halls for ensembles of all sizes, a dedicated wing for the Conservatory’s Early Childhood music programs and the magnificent Bella Concert Hall at the facility’s heart.
