Led by Stephen Drury of the NEC faculty, Callithumpian Consort is a loose aggregation of NEC students, alumni, and new music enthusiasts that performs locally, on the East Coast, and in Europe. Throughout the year, the group visits NEC with performances of contemporary avant-garde music.
In Callithumpian Consort's first appearance of the season at NEC, Ives's century-old but still audacious Trio is paired with commissioned works by NEC alumni Lei Liang '96, '98 M.M., Onur Yildirim '09.
