New England Conservatory exceeded its goal of raising $750,000 at its annual scholarship gala “El Festín de la Música (A Feast of Music),” which took place on Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.
Co-chairs for the event, which pairs gourmet-banquet courses with musical performances by NEC students, were trustee Suki de Bragança and visitor Deborah R. Hanley – both of Beacon Hill. Honorary chair was Hilda Ochoa-Brillembourg of the board of overseers.
Through ticket proceeds, a silent auction and personal and corporate sponsorships, the event brought in enough funds to yield scholarships for more than 35 of NEC’s gifted students.
