On February 18, 1867, Eben Tourjée opened the doors to New England Conservatory, then located in Boston's Music Hall—the building now known as the Orpheum Theatre.

And now the school is about to turn 150 years old.

Tonight, the party starts here in NEC's Jordan Hall, with an appearance by Lake Street Dive. The group will perform a set in their usual four-piece format, as well as a set accompanied by students from the NEC Philharmonia, Jazz Orchestra and Gospel Ensemble.

After meeting while students at NEC in the early 2000s, Lake Street Dive has catapulted to stardom. The foursome—vocalist Rachael Price '07, trumpet/guitar player Mike Olson '05, stand-up bassist Bridget Kearney '08 Tufts/NEC, and drummer Mike Calabrese '07—have filled major concert venues all over the country, and have been seen and heard on NPR, "A Prairie Home Companion," and everywhere music is heard.

Tickets go on sale on November 1. Tickets $30, $40. There are also a limited number of VIP seats at $150. The VIP package includes a pre-concert reception, post-concert meet-and-greet with Lake Street Dive, and tickets to NEC's A Feast of Music after-party on February 25. Tickets are available in person and by phone at the NEC box office (617-585-1260), and at tix.com.

Tonight's birthday concert is just the beginning. The 2017-2018 season will bring amazing programming, and much, much more.On February 18, 1867, Eben Tourjée opened the doors to New England Conservatory, then located in Boston's Music Hall—the building now known as the Orpheum Theatre.
