Was there a Music Academy/Conservatory in 1880?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I find the San Francisco Conservatory of Music got its start in 1917, is there any other academy or conservatory of music in the late 19th century? To what extent was there a symphony orchestra?
