Many thanks to our donors, sponsors, co-chairs, and committee members for an unforgettable Feast of Music 2014! We were able to raise a record amount and many are calling it our best Feast yet!


A Feast of Music 2014

NEC's Annual Scholarship Fundraising Gala, celebrated all things Latin American from Piazzolla to Villa-Lobos! This year's Feast featured virtuoso performances of works by Latin American composers performed by NEC's young artists, paired with sumptuous courses of fine cuisine and wines of the region.  

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.
