The hub of the conservatory is the “con lounge,” located in one of the main throughways of the complex. Large floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the iconic and scenic koi pond. It’s a gathering place, a social space, a gallery—currently showing Milt Hinton’s intimate portraits of jazz luminaries, and a news center with large bulletin boards pinned with creative recital posters.
Community events are frequently held there, and in the winter, crowds flood for the 25-year-long-running Bassoon Christmas concert. It’s also a sometimes-boisterous postconcert reception scene after junior and senior recitals, where you may even be lucky enough to score leftover cupcakes.
