Georges Longy, the eminent principal oboist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, founded the Longy School in Boston to provide comprehensive training in musicianship and performance in the Paris Conservatoire model. The curriculum emphasized individual attention to each student, as well as solfège and theory as the basis of sound musical understanding-traditions still central to the School's programs in its tenth decade. Renée Longy-Miquelle succeeded her father as Director, confirming the School's future character as a small, intimate institution dedicated to high performance standards and rigorous musicianship training. An advocate for twentieth-century music, and later a beloved teacher at the Curtis Institute and Juilliard School, Madame Longy-Miquelle filled out the faculty with Georges Longy's Boston Symphony colleagues and established Dalcroze Eurhythmics as an important component of the School's curriculum.
