North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC).

About NEMPAC: The North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) is a 501(c)(3) community music school and professional performing arts center founded in 2001. We exist to enrich Charlestown, the North End, and surrounding Boston neighborhoods with accessible, high-quality music education and programming programs. We believe the arts are an expression of our shared humanity.

  • We believe the arts are an antidote to stress, a source of comfort and hope, and an innate connection builder.
  • We believe the arts transform a neighborhood into a community.

Positioned at the intersection of arts education and performance, we empower artists of all ages and abilities, and in doing so, strengthen our neighborhoods into unified communities.

Accessibility is the drumbeat of our organizational song. We define accessibility as the creation of opportunities for all to experience the transformative power of the arts. One of the ways we create opportunities is through youth scholarships.
