RSVP by Feb. 10th!
The year's Feast will celebrate the rich, colorful traditions of Russia: Music from the Golden Age. Drawing from one of the world’s great musical heritages, this year’s Feast will span a wide range: From the evocative music of Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin and Glinka to the iconic works by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, along with so many other classic composers, the musical variety of this year’s Russian theme is unparalleled. Combined with contemporary Russian cuisine, which has been named the next big trend on the international culinary scene, this year’s gala promises to exceed all others!
A Feast of Music has been acknowledged by the Improper Bostonian as elegantly decadent and flawless. The Boston Globe calls it a tuneful evening. The Beacon Hill Times raves about its spectacular cuisine, fine wines, and virtuoso musical performances. It also celebrates a great cause: the education of musicians. This gala event brings together 450 of the city’s most prominent business leaders, music lovers, and cultural philanthropists to benefit New England Conservatory’s general scholarship fund.
