Students from NEC's highest level programs—the Artist Diploma, Doctorate of Musical Arts, and the Professional Piano Trio Program—will perform at The Kennedy Center for The Conservatory Project.
Whitney Robinson, Chelsea Whitaker, and Merz Trio's Brigid Coleridge, Julia Yang, and Lee Dionne will be performing at the Kennedy Center on February 20th at 6pm for The Conservatory Project. These performers represent the highest level of music education at NEC as members of the Artist Diploma, Doctorate of Musical Arts, and the Professional Piano Trio programs.
The Conservatory Project is an initiative designed to present the young musical artists in classical, jazz, musical theater, opera, and more from the United States' leading undergraduate and graduate conservatories, colleges, and universities in performance at the Kennedy Center.
NEC Vice President and Provost Tom Novak says that he is honored by NEC's inclusion in the series and calls the Conservatory Project "a meaningful opportunity for students to share their artistry and connect with audiences in our nation’s capital."
Mezzo-soprano Whitney Robinson and pianist Chelsea Whitaker will be performing works by Mozart, Bizet, and Bernstein. The Merz Trio will be performing works by Haydn, Staud, and Beethoven.
The performance will be streamed live on the Kennedy Center's website and then archived for future viewing.
