The Conservatory was founded in 1994 and serves students within 100 mile radius on a weekly basis. The Colorado Springs Conservatory not only supports community development today, but provides programming, a positive environment and strong mentorship that combats the negative influences surrounding our youth today and develops committed, contributing, confident and creative citizens. The Colorado Springs Conservatory has long sought to find a permanent home in downtown Colorado Springs and plays a critical role in the ongoing arts and culture scene which is so necessary to a vibrant (downtown) community.
