Mission Statement

New England Conservatory of Music (NEC) educates and trains musicians of all ages from around the world, drawing on the talent and deep reservoir of experience of our faculty. We are dedicated to instilling the highest standards of excellence and nurturing individual artistic sensibility and creative growth. Understanding that music is one of the transcendent expressions of human civilization, NEC aspires to ensure it a central place in contemporary society.

Background Statement

Founded in 1867, New England Conservatory is an internationally renowned college of music, and the oldest continuously operating independent school of music in the U.S. For nearly 150 years, NEC has been consistently forward-looking in its embrace of vital developments in the musical world. In 1881, NEC was instrumental in the establishment of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and today, half of the BSO is composed of NEC faculty and alumni. In 1969, NEC became the first major conservatory to establish a fully accredited Jazz program, and our unique Contemporary Improvisation program also recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. NEC’s Jordan Hall, a National Historic Landmark opened in 1903, has hosted appearances by virtually every important musician of the past century.

Impact Statement

NEC offers 36 majors, including all orchestral instruments, voice, conducting, keyboard, jazz, opera, contemporary improvisation, music history, ethnic and world music, theory and composition. College students play in more than 35 NEC ensembles, from jazz combos and chamber groups to orchestras, choruses and opera. Our Entrepreneurial Musicianship program advances students’ development as self-reliant professionals, and our 50 Sistema Fellows graduates lead organizations serving more than 5,000 disadvantaged children in 37 communities from Atlanta to Alaska, including six programs in the Boston area that serve more than 500 local at-risk youth.

Our student body consists of approximately 750 graduate and undergraduate conservatory students, as well as 1,800 youth and adults who study in our preparatory and continuing education divisions. Our extensive community outreach programs reach 14,000 children & adults each year, in schools, day-care centers, hospitals, homeless shelters and other partner organizations. Nearly one-third of NEC students participate in more than 400 such programs with 120 community partners, demonstrating the value we place on public service.
NEC provides nearly 1,000 free concerts to our community each year, serving an audience of more than 40,000 in Jordan Hall alone, plus thousands more in our smaller venues. 13,000 NEC alumni live and perform in more than 40 countries throughout the world, as soloists and members of countless classical, jazz, and commercial ensembles of all sizes and genres, including virtually every major orchestra in America, as well as on Broadway, television and film. More than 4,000 NEC alumni, faculty and students live, work and make music in Massachusetts, and together they touch nearly every aspect of musical life in the region. NEC is a major engine of the vital activity that makes Boston a musical and cultural capital, and provides a continuing stream of new talent for the musical life of the world.


Needs Statement

New England Conservatory is currently raising funds for the construction of a new Student Life and Performance Center (SLPC). The SLPC will provide needed rehearsal, performance, residence and library facilities for NEC’s students and faculty. With three new performance spaces, it promises to become a focal point of musical and cultural activity in Boston, as NEC’s Jordan Hall has been for more than a century. The SLPC will be a landmark building and a beautiful legacy for the Conservatory and for our community, concretely and transparently expressing NEC’s artistic vibrancy, and helping us to better pursue our mission as one of the world’s leading schools of music. With a fundraising goal of $70 million, NEC plans to commence construction in summer 2015 and open the Student Life and Performance Center in 2017 to celebrate NEC’s 150th anniversary year. As described under “programs,” below, other key fundraising priorities include student scholarships, and a goal of approximately $3 million for the Annual Fund, which supports all of NEC’s ongoing activities.

The Annual Fund supports NEC’s world-class faculty and student musicians as they strive to develop and share their artistic resources, knowledge and talent.

Community Performances and Partnerships

NEC’s Community Performances and Partnerships (CPP) Program is based on the premise that music improves quality of life, and that live performances should be accessible to all people regardless of age, race, or economic background. Through CPP, Boston school children receive hands-on, individualized musical education, and underserved audiences of all ages experience top quality live musical performances in familiar settings, bringing the power of live music to disadvantaged communities where few such opportunities exist. The program also provides valuable training and experience to Conservatory students, fostering a dedication to community service that they carry forward throughout their careers. Each year, more than 400 CPP programs reach approximately 14,000 children and adults from all walks of life throughout the greater Boston area. Our 120 community partners include schools, libraries, nursing homes, hospitals, homeless shelters and many other respected community institutions.

Each year, thousands of young musicians from the U.S. and abroad apply for admission to NEC. For many, scholarships and financial aid are crucial factors in their ability to attend the Conservatory, or even to contemplate pursuing a career in music. The need is great: 98% of NEC applicants request financial aid, and 90% of our students receive some level of assistance. This support affords talented students the opportunity to pursue their passion, as they strive to establish themselves in a vitally important field that offers few financial rewards but has a significant impact on society. All students who receive scholarship support also benefit from the encouragement of knowing that others share a commitment to their education and to their becoming the music leaders of the future.

Student Life and Performance Center

As the centerpiece of NEC’s Campus Master Plan, the Student Life and Performance Center (SLPC) will address essential needs for living, performance and educational facilities to advance NEC’s core educational and artistic mission. The 135,000 square-foot fully accessible building will consist of a public performance complex at the base of a ten-story student residence, with learning, rehearsal and performance spaces including an Orchestra Room, Large Ensemble Room, Opera Center / Black Box Theater, a dining commons and a state-of-the-art library. Surrounded by a new green streetscape, a transparent facade will present an inviting face to the community, revealing welcoming spaces and vibrant music-making. As Jordan Hall did more than a century ago, the SLPC will transform our institution and open NEC to the community in new ways, while providing our students with a physical environment and facilities that reinforce and promote the standards of excellence they strive for in their art.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
