Annual Gala

2019 Gala Logo

New England Conservatory celebrated its Inaugural Gala on Saturday, April 27, 2019. The event raised over $1.19 million in support of NEC’s incredibly talented students, who develop their artistry day in and day out on stages, in practice rooms, and in our community. 

Please join us on Saturday, May 2, 2020 for next year's Annual Scholarship Gala. 

Your support empowers these students, from the Suzuki program to Artist Diploma, to transform the world with a musical life. Thank you for generously supporting and committing to the future of music.
