Jason Camelio


After returning from my final trip of 2009, I have taken some time to reflect on the numerous successes of Berklee's international programs over the past year.

Mark O'Connor Helps Launch American Roots Music Program


In December, students and faculty who specialize in traditional American music had a rare opportunity to learn from and perform alongside one of the contemporary legends of American music. During the week of December 7, 2009, world-renowned fiddle virtuoso and composer Mark O'Connor spent four days on campus working with students in preparation for a December 10 concert. The show, staged in the Berklee Performance Center, offered a showcase for O'Connor's matchless playing and compositions and for the announcement of a new educational initiative at the college.
