Perched on the shore above the harbor, its distinctive turrets have welcomed generations of music lovers arriving at dusk for a concert.

The Sydney Conservatorium of Music celebrates its centenary in 2015. This lavishly illustrated history records its story, from its humble beginnings in the old Government House stables, to its current accommodation in facilities that are, by any measure, outstanding. Peter McCallum recounts the stories of many of the colorful characters who have worked at the Con. Innovative directors who shaped the institution: Henri Verbrugghen, Eugene Goossens, and Rex Hobcroft- great musicians Florence Austral, Roger Woodward, Joan Sutherland, Richard Bonynge, Charles Mackerras, Malcolm Williamson, Peter Sculthorpe, Don Burrows- renowned performances- the teachers and the students.

Behind the scenes, there was always the need to accommodate changes in musical style, secure funding, and navigate relationships with government, the University of Sydney, and the other musical institutions.
