Please join us on Friday, September 1 at the Westin Copley Place Hotel for the 12th annual Berklee Opening Day celebration. Opening Day is a time to celebrate the start of the new academic year and to come together as a community of faculty and staff to reflect on our achievements and our shared mission to serve our students and cultivate a supportive learning environment.
Our featured keynote speaker this year is Kaitlyn Lusk, lead soloist for the Lord of the Rings Symphony. You can read more about Kaitlyn here.
All faculty and staff at the College and the Conservatory are encouraged to attend Opening Day, however, we understand that some offices must stay open during regular business hours.
