The Conservatory Project

Conservatory home

The Conservatory Project is an initiative of Performing Arts for Everyone's Millennium Stage. It is a semi-annual event occurring in February and in May, designed to present the best young musical artists in classical music, jazz, musical theater and opera from our nation's leading undergraduate and graduate conservatories, colleges and universities in performance at the Kennedy Center.

The Conservatory Project creates an ongoing showcase for our nation's exceptional young talent and introduces Washington audiences to young musicians destined to have important careers.
