Each Sunday the series, curated by Berklee's Ensemble Department, presents a different group representing a wide variety of genres, styles, size, and configurations playing music spanning from Afro-Pop to Broadway, Funk to Joni Mitchell and everything in between. The series debuts with The Music of Charles Mingus on September 18. Upcoming brunches will feature Berklee Ensembles performing The Music of Miles Davis on September 25th, the Jazz Standards Ensemble on October 2nd, and The Music of Roy Hargrove on October 9th. Additional programming will be announced soon.

City Winery Founder & CEO Michael Dorf explains, "Starting out as a musician isn't easy. We're glad to provide an authentic (and paid!) performance experience for these students. Berklee is the ideal partner for this experiment, and we anticipate great success - and incredible music!"

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to team up with City Winery to present a beautiful experience with music while showcasing the talents of Berklee out in the community," says Tyrone Chase, Berklee's Assistant Chair of the Ensemble Department."

Berklee's roster of successful alumni includes Keith Jarrett, Pat Metheny, Branford Marsalis, Diana Krall, Melissa Etheridge, Charlie Puth, as well as John Mayer, and Esperanza Spaulding.

Each City Winery offers intimate concerts, food and wine seminars, private event spaces, upscale dining, and a fully functioning winery. Today, in addition to Boston, City Winery has physical locations in New York City, Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Hudson Valley.
