Executive Sessions

Unbutton the white collar for Executive Sessions—an innovative concert series showcasing bands whose members include Boston-area CEOs and corporate executives returns for its fourth season. This season, we are adding 24-track recording and live web broadcast for all of our shows.

All proceeds from the series directly support the Executive Sessions scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has outstanding musical merit, entrepreneurial promise, and demonstrated financial need.

Since the series began in 2008, the stage of Cafe 939 has hosted presidents and CEOs of international corporations, an NBA club-owner, venture capitalists, investment bankers, software and biotech engineers, heart surgeons, jet pilots, pharmaceutical scientists, Emmy Award–winners, executive producers, philanthropists, board of trustees members. . . . With top student singer-songwriters opening for the bands, the diverse audience is in for a special treat. The series is booked and produced by Berklee's Mirek Vana and Tom Simons, president and creative director of communications firm PARTNERS+simons.

April 26: Steve Oristaglio and Friends

After his smash-hit performance last year, Oristaglio returns with original arrangements of his favorite unplugged and upbeat music. This time, he joins forces with the extraordinary violin player and bandmaster Jakub Trasak, a seventh-semester Berklee student, and brings together the best instrumentalists and vocalists on campus to perform two sets of music ranging from Beatles to Coldplay to Charlie Daniels.
