A flight of performances. A richness of artists.

In December, April, and May, New England Conservatory fills the air with the sounds of piano trios, string quartets, and more, both day and night. Performers include NEC's faculty of chamber music superstars, and the students coached by these great artists.

In tonight's concert, student ensembles demonstrate the works they have coached with faculty through the semester.
