Hugh Wolff"I am always amazed by the passion, commitment, and virtuosity of NEC's students. This year, we'll give you music by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Mahler, Wagner, Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Schubert, and Sibelius—great music by the stars of the future in beautiful Jordan Hall—all for free! Who could resist?"
Hugh Wolff

David Loebel"For years, I've wanted to conduct a concert that juxtaposes Stravinsky's and Bizet's very different Symphonies in C … perhaps starting off with a symphony in C by Mozart. On October 8, I'll get the chance to do my fantasy program for real."
David Loebel
