The Municipal Conservatory of Barcelona is a teaching institution, which is devoted to music education. The present ownership belongs to the Barcelona City Hall.
The beginnings took place in 1886; it was founded by the Municipal Band of Barcelona as a school of music, so that the new musicians of the band could be trained there. Other cities that had a band had made the same thing, since they had the same necessity.
The first director was :ca:Josep Rodoreda, until in 1896 Antoni Nicolau replaced him. In 1911 the position of assistant director was created. The first assistant director was Enric Morera until 1935. In 1930, when a new director was needed for the band, Lluís Millet was elected. He was more conservative and he was preferred by the Barcelona City Hall. His election for this position created some polemics.
In the meantime, in 1928 the conservatory building was placed in the corner between Bruc and València streets.
Millet left the position in the year that the Spanish Civil War ended (1939). The next year, :ca:Joan Baptista Lambert replaced him until 1945. During this time, the institution was transformed from a School of Music into a Conservatory. In 1945 a new studies plan was introduced, which was based on the 1942 decree that unified the studies in all the conservatories of Spain.

  • It is a building that some confuse with the House of Punxes but some other similarity but are of different architect and there are several differences in sight. Anyway, it also draws a lot of attention.
