Where musicians attend college if they are unable to be accepted at a university. Rejection of musicians by universities is most often based on low test scores and grades, poor English skills and most commonly, general lack of intelligence. Prominent examples include the Juilliard School in New York City, the New England Conservatory in Boston, the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, and the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.
Shit dude, I got rejected from Rice and USC, and waitlisted at Northwestern... well, I guess I'll just go to a conservatory then (sighs).

An apolitical non-sectarian sanctuary where Hymen is offensive, but Urine is hilarious. A quiet place of rest, respite, and refuge; a smoky, ceiling-fanned haven of joviality and jocularity far removed from the hectic pace and daily drudge of life. A He-Man Woman Haters Club where wrinkled old lawyers and other professionals can drink overpriced maple-flavored bourbon, smoke expensive cigars, watch hockey games, brag (or complain) about their new hips, trade stories and golf clubs, Buck Up, turn 50 cents into a dollar, and have their income redistributed (efg). Also colloquially known as “The C” or “Bogie’s Place.” Members may be referred to as “Men of The C.”
“I’m going to The Conservatory, don’t wait up.”
“I got pimped ten straight hands at The C. Who dealt this drek?”

A school of bad ass musicians down the street from a bad ass symphony.
Daniel was just a regular musician before he went to Boston Conservatory, but after he graduated...he was a bad ass.

Get the Boston Conservatory mug.
A music school in Boston with a slight inferiority complex (think Juilliard, Curtis). The string players, pianists, and clarinetists are the freakin' best in the country. It's acronym is NEC, obviously. It's in a wicked old building on Huntington Ave in Boston and has Jordan Hall inside, which is repeatedly called one of the best concert halls in the US.
New England Conservatory is the shit. Go to hell, Juilliard.
