The Boston conservatory was founded in 1867 by Julius Eichberg to serve as a community music school and professional training academy. Since its foundation, the academy has been influenced by the music conservatories of Brussels, Prague, London, Paris and Vienna. The institute merged with the National Associated Studios of Music at the beginning of the 20th century.
The conservatory is also known for creating the first department of grand opera in the United States and drawing special emphasis on American forms of modern dance. The conservatory is private and independent serving the communities of Boston in the fields of music, dance and theater. Some of the alumni of the Boston Conservatory include Jack Noseworthy (film and television actor), Eddie Korbich (Broadway actor) and Michelle Chasse (dance instructor, Musical Theater Dance).
