Join us for a reception, dinner, live and silent auctions, and entertainment featuring 150 musicians and a host of surprises for Berklee’s 20th Anniversary Encore Gala!
The gala will feature master of ceremonies Jamie Lee Curtis, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic, and Fred Wesley, best known for his work with James Brown. Rising bluegrass sensation Sierra Hull '11 and Grammy-winning American zydeco musician Terrance Simien will also perform.
More than 150 faculty, alumni, and student musicians will perform Latin jazz, rock, reggae, big band, R&B, bluegrass, hip-hop, and world music in eight different nightclub settings. Visit with friends during the cocktail reception and dinner, and participate in the live and silent auctions featuring unique Berklee celebrity experiences.
End the evening on a high note at our after-party by dancing to the rhythms of acclaimed artists George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic and Fred Wesley from the original James Brown Band.
We have put together an amazing evening for this anniversary and would like you and your friends to be a part of it.
All proceeds benefit the Berklee City Music program, a nonprofit education program that harnesses the energy of contemporary music to reach underserved fourth- to twelfth-graders.
Seating will be limited.
