Sierra Hull has been invited to play during Boston’s First Night festival on New Year’s Eve at her alma mater, Berklee College of Music. She completed the school’s two year diploma program in 2012, and has been touted as a Berklee success story ever since – and rightly so.
Berklee has morphed from a jazz school, which is how in launched shortly after WWII, to a more general contemporary music program which seeks to prepare its students for the world of professional music. Sierra attended on a full scholarship, and was aggressively recruited by the school when she graduated from high school.
Her New Year’s Eve show will be held at the Berklee Performance Center on campus, and will be broadcast on WUMB FM. Their signal at 91.9 FM is also streamed live online, with the First Night program starting at 7:00 p.m. (EST).
Sierra said that she is looking forward to a return trip to Berklee.
“I’m so excited to be returning to Boston to play the Berklee Performance Center for First Night! I love Boston and always love getting to return to Berklee. The evening will feature some really diverse styles of music and I’m just thrilled we were asked to be a part of it. I can’t wait!”
Admission buttons for Beantown residents/visitors can be purchased for $10 from the First Night web site, which allow access to all events around town that evening on a first come, first served basis.
Sounds like a great way to start your New Year’s celebration.
