The Elder Conservatorium of Music is Australia's senior academy of music (dating back to 1883) and one of the country's most distinguished institutions for comprehensive education, professional training, and research in music. It and its forerunners have been integral parts of the University of Adelaide since the early 1880s.
Famous quotes containing the word elder:
“The Love that dare not speak its name in this century is such a great affection of an elder for a younger man as there was between David and Jonathan, such as Plato made the very basis of his philosophy, and such as you find in the sonnets of Michelangelo and Shakespeare. It is that deep, spiritual affection that is as pure as it is perfect.... It is in this century misunderstood ... and on account of it I am placed where I am now.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
