Brass students at New England Conservatory of Music study with renowned faculty mentors—virtually the entire brass section of the Boston Symphony Orchestra—as they seek to follow in their footsteps. Performance opportunities are numerous, including solo recitals, chamber music, and orchestra concerts, where you will collaborate with your talented peers who are equally dedicated.


Key facts:

  • The bonds you form with your Brass colleagues in an NEC Honors Ensemble may lead to staying together for the remainder of your studies at NEC—or you may find or confirm a life-long vocation through this program.
  • Groups that exhibit both extraordinary accomplishment and a commitment to work together are encouraged to audition midway through fall semester for NEC's Honors Ensemble program. An outside panel of jurors reviews classical chamber music groups. New England Conservatory of Music faculty select jazz and "wild card" groups. The groups selected through this process become NEC Honors Ensembles for the remainder of the school year, during which time they receive special mentoring and the guarantee of a Jordan Hall recital.
