Support the Encore Gala

Berklee College of Music’s 23rd annual Encore Gala was held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place on Saturday, October 21, 2017. All proceeds benefit Berklee City Music®, an educational outreach program that leverages the power of contemporary music to empower youth from underserved communities to develop musically, academically, socially, and emotionally.

We estimate the fair-market value of this event to be $150 per guest. Your contribution in excess of this amount is tax-deductible in accordance with IRS regulations. For more information, contact Lindsey Howe at 617-747-6418 or


"I can't thank this program enough for allowing students like myself to pursue their dreams in music and make them a reality."
