Throughout the day, families were captivated by CLCS's sistema-based music program during their end-of-year family concert. This performance not only highlighted the remarkable talents of the students but also introduced them to the expansive offerings of NEC Prep. Boston String Academy added to the excitement with their end-of-year concert, showcasing some of Boston's most talented community-based musicians. These performances strengthened our connections within the local music community and underscored the importance of collaboration and musical excellence.

In addition to the performances, attendees had the opportunity to attend admissions information sessions. The NEC Expanded Education enrollment team was on hand to provide on-the-spot student registrations and share details about available scholarships. This engagement allowed many families to discover more about the incredible educational opportunities at NEC Prep.

The spirit of collaboration and the joy of music were palpable throughout the festival. NEC is grateful to its partners, the Conservatory Lab Charter School and Boston String Academy, for their dedication and support in making this event a memorable success.

Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to this wonderful celebration. The Expanded Education department looks forward to more opportunities to come together and share the transformative power of music with the community.
