The New England Conservatory, which was founded in 1867, offers more than 600 concerts and events throughout the year, most being held in the historic Jordan Hall. Recognized nationally and internationally as a leader among music schools, New England Conservatory has trained some of the best musicians in town, including nearly half of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Programs here range from solo recitals and chamber music to orchestral programs and jazz and opera scenes. Most of the concerts are free, and no tickets are required. Those events which require tickets are noted in the concert calendar so be sure to check out the schedule in advance.
Each year, the opera studies department also presents two fully staged opera productions at the Cutler Majestic Theatre in Boston. Both the New England Conservatory and Jordan Hall are National Historic Landmarks.
