The Gonzervatory is an 8-day residential music performance workshop organized by Chilly Gonzales.

A handful of carefully selected students win an all-expenses-paid trip to the Gonzervatory for a week of intensive coaching, masterclasses and rehearsals, living together in musical immersion and culminating in a public concert led by Chilly Gonzales himself.

The Gonzervatory is open to every musician 18 or older, from all parts of the globe, who write and perform their own material: composing instrumentalists, singer-songwriters, rappers, producers. Together the Gonzervatorians and Chilly Gonzales explore Musical Humanism, audience psychology and what it means to be a performing musician in 2019.
