The night before NEC's 146th 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.

Conducting student Jacob Joyce will lead an orchestra made up almost entirely of graduating students in works by Copland and Mozart.
