We are only a few short weeks away from the NEMPAC OktoberFesta fundraiser! Come celebrate all that NEMPAC does for our North End Community and enjoy a night with friends.
Over the last year, NEMPAC has been in a tremendous period of growth. In addition to our outreach education programs at schools- such as the Eliot Innovation School and the St. John School- NEMPAC also provides a wealth of arts based programming, both at the community and professional level. Here are a few examples.
Winter and Summer Concert Series: Starting in 2011, NEMPAC has hosted free concerts both in the Old North Church (winter series) and on the Prado (summer series). Since the series began, NEMPAC has not only provided free a rts programming to our community, but also featured dozens of local artists, helping them gain a platform in the Boston music scene. Our 2013- 2014 Winter Concert Series begins Friday, November 15th with a performance from the Scott Boni Trio. Don’t miss it!
Pumpkin Painting on the Prado and CCP outreach: Interacting with our North End kids is a highlight for all of us at NEMPAC. Each year we run several community arts events, welcoming neighborhood kids to come out and play! This past October, two such events were pumpkin painting on the Prado- a NEMPAC Halloween tradition- and attending the Columbus Day festivities at Christopher Columbus Waterfront park with a craft and instrument petting zoo! More great events are in store for 2014!
NEMPAC Opera Project: As NEMPAC grows, special focus has been given to producing professional arts productions. Conceived in 2012, the NEMPAC opera project was born to serve Boston’s artistic community of singers, instrumentalists and artistic staff, as well as the general public by providing affordable opera in urban Boston. Since 2012, the project has provided opportunity for over 125 artist in Boston, as well as brought opera to St. Paul’s Cathedral, Faneuil Hall and Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, all in urban Boston. The project, now entering it’s third year has become a North End yearly tradition, bringing professional opera to our community.
