Over the years, NEC has celebrated composers of the past and welcomed living composers to the campus for residencies that explore their music. On these pages we capture highlights of NEC events past and present.

We hope you will find this a helpful resource in your discovery of music that is new to you, or to enrich your understanding of a favorite composer, using NEC's unique content. You will find essays, interviews, videos, and audio streams from NEC concerts.
