Exhilaration of Chamber Music

In December, April, and May, NEC offers An Exhilaration of Chamber Music. A Flight of Performances. A Richness of Artists.

You can indulge in piano trios, string quartets, and more, both day and night. Performers include resident ensembles the Borromeo String Quartet and Weilerstein Trio, the First Monday "family" of chamber music superstars, and the students coached by these great artists.

Throughout the year, student chamber music performances are coached by members of the New England Conservatory faculty who have themselves played the greatest works in the repertory. These are top artists on the international concert stage, either as members of full-time chamber ensembles or as soloists known for their love of collaborative music making.

Student Honors Ensembles, selected each fall by an outside jury, perform in NEC's Jordan Hall late in the spring semester.

2013–2014 season

Concert dates are in, program information will become available over the course of the year. For updates on NEC's chamber music concerts, bookmark this page, signup for NEC e-mail news, follow us at twitter.com/necmusic, or become a fan of facebook.com/necmusic.
