The night before NEC's 143rd Commencement Exercises, a grand concert in Jordan Hall puts our graduating students on display before they go off to take their place on the world's stages.

The repertory includes student composers, jazz and Contemporary Improvisation, vocal and instrumental soloists, chamber music, and large-scale works.

Graduating orchestral instrument majors form the core of an orchestra that will perform Mozart's Symphony No. 35 in D Major, "Haffner." Sigmund Haffner, whose family commissioned this work, is also memorialized in one of Salzburg's well-preserved narrow streets.
