Conxita Badia and her pupils

Apart from being a gifted performer, Conxita Badia was an inspiring teacher. Music students from all over the world came to Barcelona just for her. Among them was the Catalan Montserrat Caballé who became a singer whose talent is recognized worldwide.

Conxita also travelled around Europe and the America’s to give singing lessons, for example the summer courses in the Mozarteum in Salzburg and the prestigious yearly courses in Santiago de Compostela.

To honour Conxita Badia one of the auditoriums of the Conservatory of Barcelona and another in the Civic Centre of Sarrià (Barcelona) are named after her, as well as a square in Barcelona (Sant Martí) and two streets in Sant Pol de Mar (Maresme) and Castellbisball (Vallès Occidental). The Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México created the Conxita Badia Chair.
