PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Dear Friends,
Nothing serves to focus your attention on the excellence of Boston Conservatory students like a trip to New York City. Last month, in just one week I was able to visit with some of our young alumni, including Wendy Bryn Harmer in Götterdämmerung at the Met and several of our young leads from Broadway’s Memphis, Chicago, Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, Rent, Rock of Ages and War Horse.
The work of training and nurturing young artists like these is challenging, joyful and vitally important to the cultural future of our country. This spring at the Conservatory, students, faculty, alumni and noted professionals from all of the performing arts disciplines are speaking together about that future, and to the imaginative education these gifted aspirants need in order to take their rightful place in the world.
Please become part of the experience! The Boston Conservatory provides a unique opportunity to experience these extraordinary young artists at the nexus of their training and professional careers. Make The Boston Conservatory your partner for music, theater and dance this spring.
