The North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC)

NEMPAC is the North End of Boston’s key resource for arts programming. A group of North End mothers founded NEMPAC in 2001 in an effort to create musical programming for their children. In 2004, the Robert White Foundation donated to NEMPAC their city-operated space located off the Prado (The Paul Revere Mall) In the North End. This space, consisting of 4 private music studios, a storage basement and an office, is where NEMPAC began to flourish. Today, NEMPAC  is serving over 1200 students a week through their education programs and partnerships including the Charlestown Working Theater and the St. John Catholic School.

NEMPAC has partnered with the Eliot School for 6+ years to provide critical childhood music programming and instruction. In the 2012-2013 academic year, NEMPAC offered in school music instruction to grades K1 – K2. The partnership has grown drastically over the years with incremental increases in programming, due in part to support from foundations including the Liberty Mutual Foundation and the BPS Arts Expansion Grant Program. Today, NEMPAC provides in school music programming to all grades, K – 8 under the instruction of teaching artist Stefano Marchese. In order to broaden the enrichment provided by their in – school programming, NEMPAC will be adding piloting an after school Band Program to work collaboratively with the after school Ensemble Program.
