NEC’s faculty is a strong, committed community of educators who invest their time, talent, and expertise in our students. Fenwick Smith was no exception. During his distinguished tenure at NEC, he was a devoted studio instructor and chamber music coach.

“As a Quaker, Fenwick lived a very simple life,” said Janet Corpus, a long-time friend. Fenwick Smith’s gift to NEC attests to both the simplicity of his life and his generosity. “Fenwick’s gift was a way of giving back to the art, profession, colleagues, and institution that were so much a part of his rich experience.”

Mr. Smith’s gift will continue his legacy of musical excellence. Providing unrestricted support to NEC, it will enable current and future students to pursue that same excellence in their musical careers.
