Our Mission Listen Learn & Participate
As have so many arts organizations across our region, state, and country, NSMA has unfortunately had to cancel our spring and early summer 2020 events (April through July). Currently we have one project per month penciled in from the end of August through December. We will keep you posted about the feasibility of programming as we know more down the road. Our bottom line is that we’re committed to helping keep people in Cook County safe and healthy, while meeting your needs for great musical programming as we’re able.
Be sure to check back to this page, where I have been posting links to musical entertainment and education that you can engage with from the comfort of home.
Promising you great, healing, celebratory live events when we can meet again…
For the love of music,
Kate and the NSMA Board
Do you have a used band instrument that needs a home? Would you like to make a donation to help repair or buy used instruments for students in need?
The North Shore Music Association (NSMA) is sponsoring a donation drive to get instruments into the hands of ISD 166 band students. To strengthen music education and learning opportunities in our community, our goal is to see that every child who needs one has access to an instrument for use at school and practice at home.
Please contact NSMA Director Kate Fitzgerald for details on how to donate: 218-387-1272 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A huge thanks to the NSMA board and community members who volunteered their time and thoughtful voices to this project. Thanks also to the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, whose generous funding helped support this work!
