Image for South Shore Conservatory Announces Plans for Third Campus

Jan 09, 2018

South Shore Conservatory (Hingham, Duxbury, and Hanover, MA) recently announced the purchase of a new property at 135 Webster Street in Hanover to be developed as the organization’s third campus. The 7,000-square foot mixed-use space seeks to expand SSC programs and offerings beyond their more than 4,000 current students in campuses in Hingham and Duxbury, as well as through partnerships in communities throughout the South Shore.

“The vibrant community on the South Shore has filled SSC classrooms with music and joy for over 45 years. It’s a testament to that support that we now are growing beyond our current spaces,” said Kathy O. Czerny, SSC’s president. “We are so excited to have the opportunity to establish a new campus in Hanover enabling us to extend our reach and spread music education, performance, and enjoyment across the region.”

The new property, which previously served as medical offices, will be retrofitted by summer of 2020 to house multi-use classrooms, a state-of-the-art Creative Arts Therapy Center, and administrative offices. Additionally, SSC plans to construct a new multi-purpose, 250-seat performance space beyond the property’s current footprint.

“This new center allows us to expand our critical offerings for a growing community of creative arts therapies students, ensuring that music, creative movement, and art experiences are accessible to every resident of the South Shore,” said Eve Montague, director of creative arts therapies at South Shore Conservatory.
