THE MISSOURI SYMPHONY CONSERVATORY IS MID-MISSOURI’S LARGEST INDEPENDENT MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR KIDS!

The Missouri Symphony Conservatory, operated by the Missouri Symphony, offers four orchestra ensembles and a summer camp, allowing students to explore according to their own musical progression and interests. Programs for a wide range of ages and performance levels nurture each student’s innate artistic expression, leading to the personal rewards that come from accomplishment.
While the Conservatory is a wonderful place where our children can see what the world of music has to offer, we see it as the perfect place to show the world what our children have to offer as well. With emphasis placed on the ensemble experience, Conservatory students work with nationally-renowned artists and perform in two annual concerts – one per semester.

We consider it an honor and privilege to work with your child as they grow in musical theory and performance.
