Global Groove

Berklee's International Programs and Admissions departments have had an exceptionally busy winter presenting clinics and concerts, and holding auditions and interviews around world. We held events throughout Europe in Berlin, Dublin, London, Madrid, Paris, and Stockholm; in Latin America in Buenos Aires, Mexico City, and Panama; and in Asia in Tokyo and Kobe, Japan, and in Kuala Lumpur. These events have allowed us to connect with a host of fantastically talented alumni, established artists, and applicants to the college.

We are looking forward to an exciting and equally as busy spring and summer with programs in Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, Australia, and Spain. Below are some photos captured in various locations over the past few months.
