New England Philharmonic

Now in its 37th season, the New England Philharmonic (NEP) under the direction of Richard Pittman, is internationally renowned for its daring programming encompassing both contemporary and traditional works. In 2013, the volunteer orchestra was awarded its 9th ASCAP award for Adventurous Programming and named Gunther Schuller Composer Laureate. In 2012 the Boston Globe named NEP’s Britten War Requiem as one of the 10 best Classical Music Performances of the year.

The orchestra’s illustrious past includes the installation of three landmark programs. In 1985 NEP became the first orchestra of its size to support a Composer-in-Residence and introduce a Call for Scores Program and a year later, a Young Artists Competition, legacies that endure today. Since 1997, NEP has had the privilege of serving as the orchestra-in-residence at Simmons College.
