The NEC Concert Choir is the Conservatory's resident symphonic choir. Ranging from 85 to 115 members strong, this ensemble offers undergraduate vocal performance, piano performance, guitar performance and composition students the opportunity to perform music from all styles and periods of choral literature, extending beyond traditional Western masterpieces to the music of non-European cultures. While this choir will perform occasional choral octavos, selected repertoire typically focuses on large choral/orchestral and a cappella works. Recent performances include Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 2 “To October,” Honegger’s King David, Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil, op. 37, and Saint-Säens Oratorio de Noël, op. 12.
