The Cape Cod Conservatory celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2006. Founded in 1956 by a committee of people interested in starting a conservatory on Cape Cod, Dr. Paul Giuliana, a member of the association of music teachers, was hired to investigate the possibility of starting such an institution. When Dr. Giuliana returned with a report that such a school was feasible, the group promptly elected him President. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts granted a charter to the Cape Cod Conservatory of Music and Arts on April 5, 1956. In 1960 the Conservatory moved from Hyannis to Barnstable. After the sudden death of Dr. Giuliana, a new administration under the directorship, saw the need for more support from the Cape Cod community. In 1971 Richard Casper was appointed director and ground was broken for the present 14 acre West Barnstable facility. In order to cope with the problem of transportation, the Cape Cod Conservatory established an extension in Falmouth in the fall of 1958. J.K. Lilly III donated 26 acres of the Beebe estate for the Falmouth campus. Sarah Caldwell dedicated the center. Although a non profit school from its first days the Conservatory charged tuition to all except a limited number of scholarship students until 1964. At that time the Board voted unanimously to make the conservatory accessible for all and committed more funds to scholarships. Today the Cape Cod Conservatory continues that tradition and raises funds to provide high quality instruction for qualified students who wish to pursue the arts. The Conservatory serves as a cultural center of artistic standards to which the community can look with pride and assurance.
