Mieka Pauley

Rethink Music is partnering with several Boston music promoters to provide conference-goers access to multiple performances by leading artists in various musical genres.  

Mieka Pauley began as a solo artist in Boston. Her haunting voice and heartbreaking lyrics gained her more than a few fans, securing her bills with Citizen Cope, KT Tunstall, Natasha Bedingfield, Ben Kweller, Mason Jennings, John Legend, the Avett Brothers and many others. She's performed at the Newport Folk Festival, The Rock Boat and the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, among other festivals; she's performed the national anthem three times for the Boston Red Sox; and she performed on PRI's Mountain Stage.

At the core of Sydney Wayser's music is her unabashed love for gloomy orchestrations and waltz rhythms. There's the tinkling glockenspiel, a lone oboe, accordion and creaky string arrangements, with Wayser's piano work steering the ship. It's an appropriate backdrop for her brooding meditations on misery and heartache, all set in a world inhabited by lurking strangers and ghosts of the past. Think Tori Amos or Fiona Apple with fewer dramatic flourishes.

When Prince calls you a brilliant performer, you know it's a high compliment.  The Purple One was referring to Leah Siegel, the singer/songwriter/instrumentalist behind the Brooklyn group Firehorse. Prince was certainly onto something, as Siegel's full array of musical talents is on display on Firehorse's eclectic debut album.

Performed by Berklee students, with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse.

Executive Sessions is back for its 2011–2012 season. Join us for this celebration of music and the entrepreneurial spirit. Over the past four years, Berklee's outreach in Canada brought sensational results:more talent and more students than ever before were auditioned, interviewed, accepted, and enrolled at our college. Students from every corner of Canada are represented on our campus and in this event. Berklee has long enjoyed a reputation for drawing students from all over the world, representing more than 70 countries. The number of Canadian students now joins South Korea as the most represented foreign countries at Berklee. This third semiannual event features another great selection of talent from the north. The night also introduces the winners of the prestigious Slaight Family Scholarship: Samantha Schultz (voice), Lucian Gray (guitar), John Lee (drums), and Daniel Ko (sax).
