Projects and Alliances

The goal of the Reina Sofía School of Music is to educate and nurture young talents from all around the world, and bring music closer to society. As part of its initiatives, the School is a member of various national and internacional institutions, and takes part in projects that seek to develop musical education and address the challenges young musicians face today.

Association Européene des Conservatoires

The Association Européenne des Conservatoires (AEC) AEC is the leading voice for Higher Music Education in Europe, and sees professionally focused arts education as a quest for excellence in three areas: artistic practice; learning and teaching; ­­research and innovation. It seeks to foster these elements and to encourage the diversity and dynamism with which they are pursued in different institutions, countries and regions.



Asociación Española de Orquestas Sinfónicas

The Asociación Española de Orquestas Sinfónicas (AEOS) is a non-profit assocation founded in 1993 that gathers 35 symphony orchestras: 28 professional orchestras, 2 youth orchestras and 1 international orchestra. Furthermore, since 2019 it includes 4 other orchestras from music schools and freelance programes. The goal of AEOS is to foster and develop cooperation between its member orchestras and serve as a meeting point and information and learning hub. 




The European Network of Opera Academies (ENOA), which the Reina Sofía School of Music is a member of, stems from the wish of various institutions of the operatic world (academies, festivals, foundations, and opera producers) of strengthening their collaboration in helping young artists of great talent start their professional careers and reach their artistic goals.
