Eighteen graduates from The Harid Conservatory returned to campus last March for a special musical reunion. They performed together for the first time as alumni in a 25th anniversary concert, which featured works of Bach, Brahms, Mendelssohn and Mozart. 

“As we connected, we realized the tapestry of our friendship and music still resonated,” said María Otero-Brotherston. 

The Harid group reestablished ties and created new ones with Lynn conservatory musicians through Facebook.

“We have a great network of alumni,” said Michelle Beauchesne.

Members of the group, who graduated between 1991 and 1999, came from as far away as Uruguay. Despite their distance, graduates keep in touch through Lynn’s annual concerts and social media.

“It was an honor to have conservatory alumni from up to 25 years ago join us in concert. The concert celebrated a significant moment in our history—the foundation to create our world-class conservatory that today provides students the opportunity to study music at no cost.”

Gregory Malfitano ’73, ’75, senior vice president for development and administration

The Harid Conservatory was established in 1987 to provide professional training for gifted young performers from across the globe. In 1999, The Harid Conservatory moved to Lynn. Today, the university’s Conservatory of Music attracts students from every corner of the world and provides full-tuition scholarships to all of its students.
