    Pierce Contemporary Improvisation Series

    Presented by at New England Conservatory's Pierce Hall

    Pierce Contemporary Improvisation Series

    Last year, donor generosity allowed NEC to transform a neglected recital hall in NEC's St. Botolph building into Pierce Hall: a new, state-of-the-art performance space. What better place to trumpet the innovative sounds of NEC's student jazz ensembles? In November and December, April and May, there are dozens of nights when you can make visits to this jazz club, where there's never a cover charge!

    Tonight's sets are with ensembles coached by Tanya Kalmanovitch and Ted Reichman.
