New England Conservatory (Music)

My Texas Tech colleague Mike McCarty provided me with the following photo of the New England Conservatory, from a family college-exploration visit. This music education blog discusses the distinction between studying music in a conservatory vs. doing so at a liberal arts institution. Located near Symphony Hall in Boston, NEC offers bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in music (the bachelor's also including liberal arts coursework). NEC also offers joint degree programs with Tufts and Harvard.

The specific building shown in the photo is Jordan Hall, which according to the Wikipedia page on the NEC, is the conservatory's primary concert hall, hosting roughly 1,000 performances a year.
