Through this three-hour informative session, music students can experience Berklee closer to home. Designed to engage and connect musicians with a variety of musical backgrounds, this is a great way to help determine if additional music education at Berklee or through Berklee Online may be the right path for you.
Held in two parts, the first segment allows audience members to observe a Berklee-style open rehearsal in which a Berklee band of international faculty, students, and alumni rehearse an ensemble tune as well as work with local vocalists on a choral composition. Ask the Berklee team about anything including arranging, production, bandleading, good practice habits, stage presence, and how to increase your musical vocabulary.
The second segment is a panel discussion with Berklee students and alumni. Learn more about their unique Berklee experiences and how they are shaping their careers. Gain insight into the different majors offered at the college, with opportunities to interact with an Office of Admissions representative after the event.
Special guests include:
- Kevin Doucette '05 (Holland/Canada), film and video game composer/arranger for A.R. Rahman
- Vasuda Sharma '11 (India), indie singer-songwriter
- Annette Philip '09 (India), vocalist, pianist, artistic director of the Berklee India Exchange and founder/director of the Berklee Indian Ensemble
