SFCM’s Centennial Gala will celebrate the extraordinary women whose trailblazing leadership and advocacy have significantly shaped SFCM’s success to ensure that music thrives in our community. Fearless women have been at the helm of the Conservatory since Ada Clement and Lillian Hodghead founded the Ada Clement Piano School in 1917. As we celebrate SFCM’s 100th anniversary, we are fortunate to honor the tremendous contributions of women to the school’s first 100 years.
