Interested in learning more about NEC? We encourage you to come to campus where you can take a tour, sit in on a class or rehearsal, watch performances, and get a better sense of life at the conservatory. Here you can:
- Schedule a campus tour.
- View the Fall and Spring course schedules. Prospective students may sit in on any large ensemble rehearsal. They may also sit in on many classes, but we ask that they first contact the teacher to express interest in visiting the class and ask if it would be possible to do so on the desired date. Faculty members may be emailed through their faculty biography pages.
- Use our searchable Events Calendar to find a performance during your visit.
- Even if you can't make it to NEC, chances are that our Admissions staff will be participating in an event near you. Find NEC on the road at college fairs.
