History: Our Founder

Conchita Espinosa
(February 23, 1914 – September 19, 2006)

Conchita Espinosa dedicated her life to guiding the youth. At 14, she graduated from the International Conservatory in Havana, continued her studies under Jasha Fischerman and Joaquin Nin, and performed in Mexico, Cuba and the U.S. She then continued on to found her own conservatory in Havana in 1933 By 1959, it had grown into an elementary school and arts conservatory with over 450 students. The late composer Ernesto Lecuona, considered by many to be one of Cuba’s most distinguished musicians, declared, “You were born to teach.  You have the divine gift of transforming the student and accomplishing the maximum, always bringing out his personality. That is a gift from God.”

Throughout the years Conchita Espinosa Conservatory of the Arts has been blessed with some of the best teachers who shared Conchita’s dedication to arts education.  In the past we have been fortunate to have teachers like Martha Mahr, Rosita Segovia, Dulce Anaya, Michael Fokine, and Elena del Cueto, among others. We continue to have the finest teachers available working with our students.

Today, Conchita’s dream is carried on by her daughter and Conservatory Director, Maribel Z. Diaz, her granddaughters Carol Diaz-Zubieta and Ana Diaz-Zubieta, and the Conservatory teachers who work together knowing that at the heart of each performance is the core of what Conchita’s legacy is all about: “¡Ser mejor, mejor y mejor!”
