The North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) presented at North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) on April 9th with an update on their activities and upcoming programs. Representing NEMPAC were North End residents Dianne Royle, Board President and Sherri Snow, Executive Director. NEMPAC operates out of the former washhouse on the Prado (Paul Revere Mall) and uses several venues in the North End and around downtown Boston for its performances.
“NEMPAC is one of the lights of the North End,” said Royle as she introduced the non-profit’s music education and arts programming. Executive Director Sherri Snow added, “Our goal is to provide as much music and arts programming in the neighborhood as we can.” NEMPAC is planning to expand its reach to Charlestown in the near future.
Sherri described NEMPAC’s work with both the Eliot and St. John’s School, along with after school and private adult lessons. Notable upcoming performances include the musical, “Peter Pan, Jr.” and “50 Shades of Shakespeare” at the Improv Asylum. The group’s annual opera production will be “La Boheme” with performances at Faneuil Hall and Christopher Columbus Park. In addition, NEMPAC’s Summer Concert Series will return this July.
