Annual Scholarship Gala

Each year, the New England Conservatory community comes together at the annual scholarship gala to celebrate and support scholarships for NEC students.

Please save the date for the 2021 Gala: Saturday, May 8, 2021. 

Enjoy the power of music to reminisce on the wonderful memories from past years, and look forward to next year.  


Many of you have kindly asked how you can support NEC during this difficult time. If you are so inclined, we would be honored if you would consider making a gift to New England Conservatory in support of scholarship as the annual gala supports scholarship for NEC students each year – and will continue to make the NEC experience possible, particularly during this time of transition for NEC students.

Thank you so much for being a part of the NEC community, and believing in the power of music. We look forward to when we can come together and celebrate our collective commitment to NEC again.
