NEMPAC began hosting its weekly Open Mic Nights every Friday since April 3rd. These community nights were created to offer our students and community members a supportive space to share their growth as artists and musicians and to remind our community that even though we were physically apart, they were not alone and NEMPAC was there for them. From there, the event transformed into a way for people to share music together to spread peace and comfort during unprecedented times. Every week was hosted by a different NEMPAC administrator and performers from our music school and 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, to opera, to jazz, and to rock. Quickly, the event became a staple in the North End and Charlestown and organizations and other public figures began to sponsor the event to keep our Open Mic Nights running free and virtually.
