NEMPAC Brings “Meet the Musicians” Spring Series to Local Library

The North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) is partnering with the North End Library to host a “Meet the Musicians” series paired with Story-Time this spring!

This program will begin with a short story led by the library, followed by a visit and performance with the NEMPAC guest musician of the week.

The musicians will share how to participate as a respectful audience member at a concert or performance, how their instrument sounds, what they like about their instrument, and there will be time for a Q&A at the end. The workshop welcomes families and children of all ages. This is also a perfect opportunity for families to learn more about how to get your family involved in music, what ages are appropriate to start for private or group music lessons, and how to know if your child is ready!

The schedule is provided below and may be subject to change. For any updates, please check the NEMPAC website at
