North End Music & Performing Arts Center Annual Perform-a-thon Fundraiser

The North End Music & Performing Arts Center’s “Pledge Me” Campaign for their Annual Perform-a-thon Fundraiser has officially begun! This year’s goal is to raise $20,000 in pledges, sponsorships, and raffles to benefit music scholarships and educational programs.

The Perform-a-thon, NEMPAC’s annual fundraising concert, will take place on Sunday, April 7 at The Improv Asylum on Hanover Street, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This performance marathon will feature a four-hour straight show of NEMPAC students and instructors performing on the instrument of their choice, and will spotlight performances from NEMPAC programs such as the Eliot Band Program, Eliot Ensemble, Eliot Choir, Music Theatre Troupe, and Kids Music Theatre.

From now until April 7th, performing students and instructors will collect pledges for their performances at this event, banding together to support the NEMPAC scholarship fund and educational programs.
