The Boston Conservatory is a formerly independent performing arts conservatory located in the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It grants undergraduate and graduate degrees in music, dance and theater. The Conservatory offers Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Music, Master of Fine Arts, and Master of Music degrees, as well as Graduate Performance Diplomas, Artist Diplomas, and Professional Studies Certificates. The Boston Conservatory was founded in 1867.[citation needed]

In recent years[when?], the school has increasingly become informally known as "BoCo", both on campus and in the larger community.[citation needed]

In December 2015, Berklee College of Music and The Boston Conservatory agreed to merge. The merger was effective as of Summer 2016. The combined institution, located in Boston’s historic Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods, is now known as “Berklee”, with the Conservatory being “Boston Conservatory at Berklee”.[citation needed]

History[edit]

8 Fenway, the Conservatory's main building.

On February 11, 1867, violinist and composer Julius Eichberg founded The Boston Conservatory as a professional training academy and a community music school. It was one of the first conservatories to grant admission to African Americans and women.[citation needed]

In 1873, Eichberg’s operetta “The Doctor of Alcontara” was performed at the Conservatory by the first African-American opera company in the U.S.[citation needed]

In 1878, Eichberg established the Eichberg String Quartet, the first professional female quartet.[citation needed]

In 1893, upon Eichberg's death, direction was assumed by R. Marriner Floyd, with Herman P. Chelius, organist and composer, serving as the musical director. Under their direction, the school was first incorporated in 1896.[citation needed]

After the turn of the 20th century, the Conservatory merged with the National Associated Studios of Music, and created the first "grand opera" department in the U.S.[citation needed]

In 1943, Jan Veen established The Boston Conservatory Dance Division, the first program to emphasize both classical ballet and America's emerging modern dance. In 1951, the school gained authority to award Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in drama and dance.[citation needed]

Prior to 2015, The Boston Conservatory was an independent private college with accredited programs in music, dance, and theater. The Conservatory has presented more than 700 performances each year.[citation needed]

In 2015, The Boston Conservatory began talks with Berklee College of Music to explore a merger of the two schools.[1]

On January 19, 2016, the two schools announced that they would be merging. The agreement was signed the next day, with Berklee College of Music being renamed Berklee and the Conservatory being renamed The Boston Conservatory at Berklee.[2][3]
