Follow in their footsteps.

BSO members share their craft as NEC brass faculty.

Brass

Brass students at NEC study with renowned faculty mentors – virtually the entire brass section of the Boston Symphony Orchestra – as they seek to follow in their footsteps. Performance opportunities are numerous, including solo recitals, chamber music, and orchestra concerts, where you will collaborate with your talented peers who are equally dedicated. The annual Brass Bash concert brings NEC/BSO faculty and students to play together.
