Conservatory " history " The New England Conservatory of Music was founded in 1867 by Dr. Eben Tourjee, and was incorporated in 1870 by a special act of the Massachusetts Legislature. Its first home was a few rooms in the Old Music Hall, but with its rapid growth and development the institution outgrew its limited quarters and in 1882 moved to Franklin Square House. The initiative and generosity of a distinguished trustee, Eben D. Jordan, made possible the construction of the present building designed specifically for musical training. It was occupied in 1902 and a substantial wing, added in 1928, was dedicated to the then President of the Board of Trustees, George W. Brown. Dr. Tourjee, at the beginning of the first century of the Con- servatory ' s life, like President Schuller, at the outset of the second century, was an innovator in the field of music education. He, too, stressed a broad spectrum of educational experiences for the music student of that day. His creation, the New England Conservatory of Music, became the model for all the great American conservatories that were to follow. In 1947, Harrison Keller became the first director to bear the title of president, in keeping with the new concept of a college of music. President Keller effected membership for the Conservatory in the New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, ena- bling the institution to have complete accreditation. During the period of his leadership, advanced diplomas were awarded to qualified post-Masters candidates in performance, and the Conservatory Chorus was developed into an outstanding performing organization, appearing in annual performances and frequent recordings with the Boston Sympho- ny Orchestra.

Lanier and Virginia P. Bacon. The program was created by the New England Conservatory to present a unique opportunity to enrich the musical lives of children and teenagers of Boston and neighboring communities. Ad- mission to the program consists of interviews and auditions which are arranged by the office. Adult students interested in non-credit instruction are admitted on the basis of availability of lesson times. The branch at The Park School in Brookline was established in 1975 and is under the administration of the Boston office. The wide variety of programs offered fulfills the need to instill the love and knowledge of music in future generations and a solid technical preparation, under the direction of highly specialized teachers and artists, for those who choose music as a career. An integral part of student participation is a series of Saturday recitals which are open to the public. Monthly departmental workshops offer students opportunities to work in all aspects of performance as well as provide a background in music history and literature. Aseries of concerts is also held at The Park School facility. PREPARATORY CERTIFICATE COURSE For students who wish pre-professional training, the certificate represents the attainment of progressive degrees of musicianship and artistic skills developed through satisfactory com- ' pletion of a balanced plan of instrumental instruction, theoretical studies and ensemble exper- ience. Each of the four certificates. Elementary, Junior. Intermediate and Senior, is awarded to the student after an instrumental audition by a faculty panel and fulfillment of class and en- semble requirements. Enrollment in theory classes is determined by a placement test. Very young beginners are offered Purhythmics. Older beginners are placed in groups according to age. Since ensembles are formed at various levels of proficiency, requirements vary. Beginners will develop in many directions, but should have a fair reading skill as well as a good ear and good basic sense of rhythm. Students are grouped according to age and advancement will be determined by audition. 64 Preparatory School Orchestra Benjamin Zander Conductor Community Services Department WEBSTER LEWIS, Director CAROLYN SOUZA- Assitant Director 69 cyltmosphere 72 77 Awh come on Bob, I just sat down ! 78 79 80 Performing Organizations 85 Scholarship Brass Quintet 86 87 92 % I would like to thank the many people involved in putting together this yearbook.
