Our visit to the New England Conservatory was amazing. The

in 4 different pieces of music. The clinic took place in the
large recital hall. Following the clinic the students were able
to tour Jordan Hall. The concert venue opened in 1903. It

countless famous performers. It was a great way to end a weekend
filled with amazing experiences!!!
