Aldo Abreu, Baroque Ensembles director
NEC Preparatory School offers an array of Baroque Ensembles, consisting of up to 20 members each, which play music composed before 1750. Students play on modern instruments, but learn about Baroque technique and aesthetic. The more advanced ensembles offer some members the opportunity to solo with the orchestra, and have masterclasses each year with performers who specialize in baroque performance.

The NEC Prep Baroque Ensembles hold auditions each May for the following academic year. Baroque Ensemble auditions are not held for ensembles, rather students are placed into an orchestra based on their audition. We begin scheduling May auditions in March of each year. To sign up for a May audition, click here. Additional entrance auditions may be held in the Fall for select instruments, on a space availability basis only. For more information about Fall auditions or to sign up for an audition, please call (617) 585-1160 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
