The Piraeus Conservatory was formally founded in 1904 when the Piraeus Society itself was established.

It had actually begun work in 1896, when members of its choir were asked to take part in the celebrations held to mark the first Modern Olympic Games. In 1903the Conservatory gained official State recognition as a fully fledged Conservatory named the Piraeus Conservatory.

Since then it has provided training in music and art to generations of young people, many of whom have gone on to become famous musicians both in Greece and abroad. One of them was the scholarMenelaos Pallantios.
