A flight of performances.
A richness of artists.
As our spring season comes to an end, New England Conservatory fills the air with the sounds of piano trios, string quartets, and more, both day and night. Performers include NEC's faculty of chamber music superstars, and the students coached by these great artists.
NEC's most popular chamber music series, First Monday concerts are curated by cellist Laurence Lesser, President Emeritus and Walter W. Naumburg Chair in Music, and feature faculty, alumni, students, and friends.
This year's season spotlights several significant composer birthdays plus pieces inspired by national, folk, or vernacular idioms. Performers whose names are followed by an asterisk are NEC alumni.
