Jazz speaks for life. The Blues tell the story of life’s difficulties, and if you think for a moment, you will realize that they take the hardest realities of life and put them into music, only to come out with some new hope or sense of triumph.
This is triumphant music.”
- Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jazz and the Blues

Our Piano Department Chair, Bruce Brubaker and piano faculty member, Alexander Korsantia recently traveled to the Steinway factory in Hamburg to purchase a new piano for Jordan Hall.
“The American Steinway is growly and has a lively bass tone, where the German Steinway has a more bell-like upper register and a beautiful attack,” said Brubaker. “The first American Steinways were revolutionary in that they incorporated many aspects of piano design, which included English, French, Viennese, and American folk and roots music sounds.I am very excited about this new piano,” he continued. “The Steinway family has a piano designing history which runs parallel to and is representative of what New England Conservatory is now and has always been. We have both carried on traditions of classical music and ended up making something totally new. Innovation guides us and we tap into the creation of sounds and styles which were not previously attempted or accepted.“Here are some pics of our beautiful new piano arriving at M. Steinert & Sons Pianos, and at NEC.
To all NEC Faculty, Staff and Students and visitors:
On Thursday, January 14, NEC’s Public Safety Department, in conjunction with Guardian Security and Protection, will be hosting Active Shooter Training from 9am – 1 pm.
This new program, ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) has been adopted by both the Federal Government and numerous law enforcement agencies, and is designed for schools and other institutional settings.
THIS IS A TRAINING EXERCISE. THERE IS NO NEED TO TAKE ANY ACTION.
This is part of our campus-wide preparedness training curriculum, and will be held in the St. Botolph Building, Room SB313. Since this is a live drill, you may see/hear some activity in that area; please don’t be alarmed.
