Meet Your Student Senators!

The NEC administration and Board of Trustees is thrilled to welcome our 4 new student senators! These students were chosen after a highly selective application process and they are here to serve YOU! Now that you know who they are, make sure your message is heard – email them with any concerns (or compliments!) you have about NEC:


Classical guitarist Raley Beggs remains passionate about sharing and enlivening the rich traditions of the guitar. Currently pursuing his master’s degree under esteemed artist and performer Eliot Fisk, Raley has found a suitable podium at New England Conservatory for which to share the music of his instrument. Raley performs widely throughout the Greater Boston Area as a soloist and chamber musician, and is an active member of the Community Performances and Partnerships Program (CPP). In addition to performing, he also enjoys writing for the Penguin and running unreasonably long distances.


Born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, British-American Konrad Herath is a sophomore horn major at NEC.  Apart from loving the works of Mahler, Stravinsky, and Richard Strauss, Konrad’s non-musical interests include traveling, learning foreign languages, and reading the works of author John Irving. Much of his leisure time is spent watching Downton Abbey or shows connected with vampires.  Konrad is also a big fan of late singer/actress Judy Garland.  His family residence is now in the great state of Vermont, and he welcomes you to contact him at his NEC e-mail address:


Tong Wang is an aspiring Canadian pianist currently in her sophomore year studying with Bruce Brubaker. Off stage, she…practices. But! She also loves to write and draw for the Penguin, hang out with friends, watch movies, eat out, jam, laugh, and play volleyball and badminton at Cambridge every weekend. Tong is excited to be part of the Committee of Student Activities, and is seeking all of the interesting student voices and ideas waiting to be heard! You can reach her at her NEC email address:


Elizabeth (Liz) Wendt is a sophomore studying classical voice. Last year, Liz was an honorary Committee of Student Affairs member where she shared her experience as a first year undergrad. This year, Liz will return to the round table as a member of the CSA where she hopes to contribute ideas to help make NEC and even better place. As a Student Senator, Liz is eager to hear the issues and concerns that NEC students would like to be addressed by administrators. If you have ideas that you would like for her to bring up in the next CSA meeting, contact her at:
