Celebrating 50 Years
Born out of collaboration, the RNCM is the product of two pioneering musical institutions and the many people who’ve played a part in our history to date.
Since officially opening our doors in September 1973, we’ve developed the traditions of conservatoire training and transformed them into a vibrant and forward-thinking laboratory, fuelling the aspirations of young musicians, composers, conductors, educators, and entrepreneurs from all over the world.
Impacting the industry on a global scale, today’s RNCM is driven to define the future of music. A place of true innovation and exceptional talent, where creativity flows freely, inspiring ambition to become reality.
