About Jordan Hall at New England Conservatory

Acoustically superb Jordan Hall is the heart and soul of New England Conservatory and has been central to the musical life of New England since its opening on October 20, 1903. The 1,013-seat hall was a gift of Conservatory trustee Eben D. Jordan, 2nd, and was designed by architect Edmund Wheelwright, following the model of the European court concert halls of the Renaissance. NEC’s Jordan Hall is a classroom, laboratory, and gathering place where New England Conservatory’s most important learning takes place, offering Conservatory students the opportunity to launch their careers in one of the world’s favorite performing spaces. In 1994, the United States Congress recognized the seminal role of New England Conservatory in the development of American musical culture by awarding National Historic Landmark designation to both the school and Jordan Hall itself. The hall has won numerous awards since it restoration in 1995, including the 1996 Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award, the Victorian Society in America’s Preservation Commendation, the 1996 Boston Preservation Alliance Award, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America Award of Merit, and the Illuminating Engineering Society 1996 Lumen Award.

Paying your parking fee at the garage window before the concert is a great way to start your evening.

Seats are pre-assigned, so there's no reason to show up early. The line at the door is a little crazy because there's not much room. The will-call table was off to one side, then just get through the doors and find your seat. They started about 10 mins late.

I wore jeans and a nice top. Most people were dressed similarly..
