Charles Peltz"The best game in Boston is the matching one I get to play every year: to put together the best young wind, brass, and percussion students in the country with the limitless catalogue of music from the Baroque to the freshest ink. No pieces too complex, no demands too great, all students able. It's really a very NEC thing—no limits. Let the games begin."
Charles Peltz

NEC's wind ensemble concerts begin at 7pm in order to welcome families, the after-work crowd, people with trains to catch, and anyone else who will be delighted by five centuries of spectacular music—but who can't stay up late.
