Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Mannheim
The Hochschule dates back to the 1762 Academie de Danse and the private Tonschule (Sound school), founded in 1776 at the court of Charles Theodore, Elector of Bavaria. They were later named Mannheimer Konservatorium and Städtische Hochschule für Musik und Theater. In 1971 the Heidelberger Konservatorium, founded in 1894, was included in a combined Hochschule with university status, run by the state Baden-Württemberg.
