2005 | Harvard/NEC double-degree program admits first students

Six students are accepted to a new five-year program that results in a bachelor’s degree from Harvard and a Master of Music degree from NEC. This unique program is an initiative of NEC President Daniel Steiner, who for many years was a Harvard vice-president.

Among the students enrolled in this program during the 150th anniversary year: pianist George Li, an NEC Preparatory School alumnus whose globe-spanning honors include a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant and silver medal at the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition.
