The Music of Ken Schaphorst

| New England Conservatory: Jordan Hall

The Ken Schaphorst Big Band released How to Say Goodbye in 2016.

Schaphorst completed his Master of Music degree at NEC in 1984, and returned to head the NEC jazz studies program in 2001.

Welcome to NEC at 150! Every generation of musicians remake and change New England Conservatory. Some, like Gunther Schuller, continue to influence our music beyond their lifetimes. Others contribute for decades, pushing the sense of what's possible by their own examples. The entire season is stuffed with chances to see the NEC legacy in exceptional, infectious, passionate action. Don't miss them!
