Open Mic Nights

NEMPAC began hosting its weekly Open Mic Nights every Friday since April 3rd, 2020. From there, the event transformed into a way for people to share music together to spread peace and comfort during unprecedented times.

Each week was hosted by a different NEMPAC administrator, and performers from our music school, the Boston community, adults, youth, and faculty alike, were invited to participate regardless of age, experience, instrument, or geographical location.

We heard a wide array of music from show tunes and opera, to jazz and rock. Quickly, the event became a staple in the North End and Charlestown. Organizations and other public figures began to sponsor the event to keep our Open Mic Nights running free and virtually. After a successful 2022-23 season in-person at our 50 Tileston Street state-of-the-art Community Music Center, we are thrilled to not only bring this event back for our 2023-24 season, but to be expanding into the great North End Community, allowing us to reach more artists of all ages and abilities!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our September Open Mic Night!

NEMPAC is thrilled to announce our monthly Open Mic Night Series at Boston Public Market!

This partnership allows us to expand into the Boston Community, reaching even more artists. We look forward to seeing new and exciting musical performances brought to the NEMPAC stage! All creative expression is welcomed. An accompanist is available.
