The Alice S. Pfaelzer Conservatory is the culmination of Merit’s instructional continuum and represents the region’s most talented and driven student musicians. Our Conservatory Open House is a great opportunity for interested students to experience a typical Conservatory day, ask questions, and determine if Conservatory might be right for you.

Stop by our Open House to:


12:30-1:30pm – Band, Jazz, Choir and Piano

2:30-3:30pm – Strings and Guitar

Please note that families need only attend one of the two session options. The same material will be covered in both sessions.
