Berklee has developed strong ties with music communities in many parts of the world, and our connections with Western Europe and Latin America are particularly well established. In seeking to enhance and develop our relationships elsewhere around the world, we've held events in various locations, including Amman, Belgrade, Beijing, Shanghai, Mumbai, Chennai, and elsewhere. The results have been especially positive and have created new musical and educational interchanges and opportunities for young musicians from these locations to attend Berklee.

The following pictorial shows some of the events conducted around the world this past fall. And as we continue to visit locations across the globe in 2012, keep an eye on the Berklee events calendar at
