A community of over 13,000 NEC alumni live and perform in more than 40 countries throughout the world, and we are proud to share their stories and successes.
Our alumni are soloists, chamber musicians, entrepreneurs, and members of classical, jazz, and commercial ensembles of all shapes and sizes. They hold teaching posts at colleges and conservatories, own record labels, serve as managers with leading arts organizations, and compose and produce for the television, film, and radio industries. In short, they’re everywhere – and they’re paving the way for a bright musical future.
Here, we put a few of our alumni Center Stage and take an in-depth look at their paths beyond NEC.
