Jordan Hall

NEC is the only school of music to be designated a National Historic Landmark. One of Boston’s most celebrated concert halls, NEC’s historic Jordan Hall is considered to have one of the best acoustics in the world, with many of the world’s leading artists performing here regularly. Most of the large ensembles within the Preparatory School have the opportunity to perform in this inspiring venue. Every year nearly 600 NEC performances, most of which are free, take place in the Conservatory’s own concert halls and throughout Boston.

Concert Recordings

Many concerts by Preparatory School performing organizations are recorded. These recordings are available for class work and private listening and represent a major resource in all musical periods and styles. NEC reserves the right to use these recordings to promote the school and raise money for the scholarship fund. All students who participate in Conservatory performances and recordings release New England Conservatory from any obligation, financial or otherwise.
