Influenced by Will Ackerman’s Windham Hill record label in the late 1980s, the music of conservatory-trained pianist and composer Dan Kennedy infuses New Age music with jazz and rock.

The Conservatory of the Ozarks is described by Director Heather Leverich as “a fine-arts school in Springfield,” offering instruction for all ages in music, art, drama and dance, but “most of what we do is music—private lessons.”  COTO will present their annual Christmas Variety and Talent Show Saturday December 13th at 6:00pm in Clara Thompson Hall at Drury University. 


Conservatory of the Ozarks offers individualized fine arts instruction and music lessons from degreed and experienced faculty, for students of all ages and all levels of experience (including no experience).  The Conservatory is accepting entries for their annual Summer Talent Show, to take place Saturday August 2nd from 5:00 to 10:00 pm at the Chesterfield Village Fountain behind Garbo’s Pizzeria, 2101 W. Chesterfield Blvd.
