Beginning Thursday, June 7 at 12:00 p.m., Atlantic Wharf will be home to free lunchtime performances every Thursday through July 26. Felix Peikli, a 22-year old clarinetist, will kick off the Berklee Lunch Sessions at Atlantic Wharf concert series, a part of Berklee Summer in the City, Presented by Natixis Global Asset Management.

Peikli, a Thelonious Monk Jazz Institute Award finalist, uncovered his musical identity as a child when his grandfather gave him a Benny Goodman recording. Currently a student at Berklee's prestigious Global Jazz Institute, Peikli has played at festivals around the world, including the Oslo Jazz Festival in 2002, which was the performance that launched his career. In 2007, Peikli was the youngest recipient ever to receive the Capital of Norway Honors Prize. After attending Berklee's Five-Week Summer Performance Program, Peikli earned a full-tuition scholarship to the college, where he has studied since 2011. 

World-class offices, waterfront restaurants, and sophisticated urban lofts come together in Boston's only waterfront, mixed-use complex. Framed by the buzzing harbor and the new Rose Kennedy Greenway, Atlantic Wharf is the Waterfront District's center of activity.

Headquartered in Paris and Boston, Natixis Global Asset Management provides investment solutions to both institutional and individual clients. The Berklee Summer in the City sponsorship is the second phase of a new multi-year global NGAM music sponsorship program designed to align business objectives with initiatives that preserve cultural experience through music.
