Conservatory Society

Marie-José Baum, chair

"I have played the piano my entire life but drifted away from music during my corporate career. After discovering the Conservatory, music is again a vital part of my life. I take every opportunity to attend concerts and recitals with friends to share the gift of music."
Randy Adams

The Conservatory Society recognizes a select group of the devoted philanthropists  who contribute $1,000 or more to the Conservatory Society. Supporting the Conservatory Society affords donors a number of opportunities as a way to thank them for sustaining our educational programs. When you join the Conservatory Society you not only support a unique institution of higher education that helps shapes Bay Area arts and culture, you contribute to the future of classical music throughout the world.
