Welcome to the Conservatory

Welcome to the Medicine Hat College Conservatory of Music and Dance.

Our Conservatory has deep roots in our community beginning in the 1960s and the passion of students, their families, our instructors and our community supporters is as strong as ever. I am pleased to say that the talents of instructors and staff are here to serve the needs of upcoming artists and to cultivate an appreciation for the performing arts.

Having vocal performance in my background and as a strong advocate for the value of education in the arts, I am excited to have the programs offered by the Conservatory here in Medicine Hat. The good work of my colleagues in the Conservatory reflects the College’s dedication and vision to “lead in learning excellence.”

In the course of the year, almost 1000 students will benefit from the high-quality programming offered by our Conservatory. As an example of the importance of the arts, the “Bring Back the Music” program brings together superlative music instruction with students who may normally not have the opportunity to learn music.

Our students and faculty perform in a variety of events throughout the course of the year and participate in competitions successfully too. I encourage you to nourish your creative soul at our Conservatory.
