A Feast of Music

The 2017 A Feast of Music was held at The Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel on February 25, 2017. The gala event celebrated the rich and colorful traditions of Russia: Music from the Golden Age and brought together over 300 of the city’s most prominent business leaders, music lovers, and cultural philanthropists to benefit New England Conservatory’s general scholarship fund.

The evening's unforgettable music featured an array of pieces by great composers of Russian history - from Mussorgsky's familiar "Pictures at an Exhibition"; the heartbreaking Final Scene Duet from Tchaikovsky's Onegin, and a grand finale of Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence. Coupled with traditional Russian cuisine, fine wines, the event was a spectacular evening that supported scholarships for NEC's dedicated, passionate students.

A huge thank you to all of our corporate sponsors and many volunteers who helped to make this evening a huge success!
