Berklee's first headphone-based concert experience, Two Track Live: A Headphone Concert, which showcased live performances from students featured on the acclaimed Two Track video series, is now available to watch Berklee's YouTube channel. At the concert, which took place last winter, each audience member received a pair of headphones, allowing them to be fully immersed in the musical journey. The concert featured pre-produced videos by different Berklee artists, aligning with the themes of origins, connections, love, celebration, and change.

“Two Track Live offers a unique finale to the Two Track series,” said Michael Borgida, Berklee's director of marketing and external affairs and the lead producer of the series. “By introducing headphones at the live concert, the distinctive concept of Two Track was shared with the live audience, featuring 20 of the series artists."

The recorded concert video features a diverse lineup of multitalented student and alumni performers, including the acoustic folk-pop trio Tiny Habits (who performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk series with Lizzy McAlpine ’20); Emme Cannon, a chamber-pop and indie-folk singer-songwriter; and folk-pop singer-songwriter Christian Inman (who collaborated with renowned YouTuber and actress Liza Koshy), among others. The concert video offers a captivating range of live performances, from intimate duos to grand displays featuring a full rhythm section, horns, strings, and a student choir.

With 50-plus episodes, Two Track showcased more than 100 Berklee artists and garnered more than half a million viewers since the series launched in September 2021. Sessions have been shared on social media by David Crosby, Jazmine Sullivan, and Tower of Power.
