Nashville Notes


While much of the Northeast was shoveling snow during the holiday season, Nashville residents were treated to our characteristic wintry gray skies and cold rain. But despite the weather, we still know how to celebrate the holidays. With the help of SESAC member and Berklee alumna Amanda Williams '99, the Berklee Nashville Alumni Chapter hosted its first alumni holiday party on December 16 at the SESAC building on Music Row. More than 60 alumni attended to catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and celebrate the holiday season together.

As we begin a new decade, it's worth reflecting on the extensive growth of the SoCal Berklee alumni community over the past 10 years. Every year the number of graduates who launch their careers in Los Angeles increases, and despite the recent challenges facing the music industry and the economy at large, the success stories keep on coming.

Congratulations to the 23 alumni who garnered 25 Grammy Award nominations for their work in 2009. Good luck on January 31.

I want to begin my first column of the new decade by wishing you all the best for 2010 and by taking a moment to review the highlights of late 2009. In December 2009, we held holiday parties in 11 of our alumni chapters. Thanks go to our dedicated chapter leaders for helping to create these great events. Below we've featured some pictures from various events. To view additional photos posted by members of the Berklee community, visit
