THIS EVENT IS RESCHEDULED FROM JANUARY 26.

Great artists give free concerts at New England Conservatory—simply because they teach here.

"New England Conservatory’s jazz faculty distinguish themselves in a lot of ways but most of all because they maintain fulltime live performance schedules."
—Lucid Culture Blog

Tonight, members of NEC's Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation faculty come together for a rare opportunity to catch them in the act—working in combinations that may never occur outside our walls, along with guest artists from their performance activities outside of NEC.
