Recital: Alexander Benjamin Lenser '23, Oboe
NEC's students meet one-on-one each week with a faculty artist to perfect their craft. As each one leaves NEC to make their mark in the performance world, they present a full, professional recital that is free and open to the public. It's your first look at the artists of tomorrow.
Alexander Benjamin Lenser '23 studies Oboe with John Ferrillo and is the recipient of a scholarship made possible by the Laura Ahlbeck Memorial Scholarship Fund.
