CI Ensembles at Prep

Chinese Music Ensemble


Hui Weng, Instructor

This ensemble is open by audition to all NEC Prep students and offers an opportunity to perform and arrange repertoire from a variety of Chinese traditional and other world music. During each rehearsal, students will listen to a diverse world music repertoire. They will learn musical forms, modes, and rhythms of typical instruments within each tradition. Students will also develop improvisation skills based on the different musical forms. The goal is to foster individual creativity and create a new musical language that innovates and crosses boundaries.

Saturday, 5:00 - 6:00 PM


CI A Cappella



Abigale Reisman, Instructor

Singers will work together to craft their own special sound and develop skills in harmonization, improvisation, and arranging to create their own repertoire of songs drawing from popular, world, early, and classical music. The group will perform in Jordan Hall, Open Mic Nights presented by the CI Department and in the community. Beatboxers are welcome. 

Saturday, 12:00 - 1:00 PM

Auditions for CI A Cappella will take place in September 2018.
