NEMPAC Perform-a-thon 2020 Raises Funds for Music Scholarships and Educational Programs
The North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) will host its 6th annual Perform-a-thon for Music Scholarships and Educational Programs on Saturday, March 28th, 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m., at City Winery Haymarket Lounge. The event will consist of a four-hour show of back-to-back performances by NEMPAC students, faculty, and classes. This year’s event is open to the public and will include festive kids activity table, raffles, and goody bags for all participating students. Tickets to attend can be purchased here.
The NEMPAC Music Scholarship Fund provides need-based tuition assistance to students from North End, Charlestown, and surrounding neighborhoods of the City of Boston. Scholarships are allocated based on need and awarded by an anonymous committee who thoroughly reviews all applications. Students are given awards to pursue artistic studies in private music lessons, summer programs, or an after-school program of their choosing. We strive to reach families regardless of financial status through free or low-cost private lessons and class programs. An August 2019 study determined that NEMPAC’s private instruction rates are 30% lower, on average, than comparable music schools in surrounding areas. This year, due to the success of the 2019 Perform-a-thon and support from our sponsors, our goal is to raise $18,000. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the NEMPAC Scholarship Fund and the continuation of lower tuition costs for our educational programs.
