The institutional collaboration between the Liceu Conservatory and the Las Rosas Conservatory has made possible many activities, among which we may highlight the masterclasses in Morelia given by the Liceu Conservatory’s professors Corrado Bolsi (violin) and Amparo Lacruz (violoncello) in 2007, and Guillem Pérez-Quer (guitar) in 2009, as well as those given in Barcelona by Germán Romero (composition) in 2008 and Rodrigo Neftalí (guitar) in 2016. It also deserves to be mentioned the presentation of Carlos Prieto’s book Shostakovich genio y drama, in May 2014.
The Las Rosas Conservatory was founded in 1743 as the first center of its kind in America. This legacy has led it to be one of the most important music education institutions nowadays in his country, Mexico. It is a non-profit civil association and it offers studies from the elementary level to undergraduate degrees.
