Conservatoire de musique et d'art dramatique du Québec
The Conservatoire de musique et d'art dramatique du Québec is a State institution . Founded in 1942 by Wilfrid Pelletier, it became a government corporation in 2007. The Conservatoire, which has branches in various regions of Québec, comprises nine educational institutions (seven teaching music, and two dramatic arts) that prepare students to become professional artists and performers. The Conservatoire's mission is to offer its students artistic training rooted in excellence, to support local organizations devoted to teaching music and dramatic arts, and to play a role in the greater cultural vitality of Québec.
The Conservatoire’s drama program is equivalent to that of a university undergraduate program. Musical training includes programs on four levels that can be taken successively: preparation (elementary and secondary school), college, and university undergraduate and graduate programs. These programs lead to degrees and certificates recognized by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur: Diploma of College Studies; Bachelor’s Degree in Music; Master’s Degree in Music.
