MISSION: To educate, inspire and celebrate the visual and performing arts in Nazareth and the Lehigh Valley.
The Nazareth Center for the Arts (NCA), run by the Nazareth Cultural and Arts Commission of the Borough of Nazareth, is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) charitable community arts based organization. All donations to the center are tax deductable. We opened our doors to the public in December of 2009 and offered nearly 100 events and meetings in our first year of operation.
Music performances spanning a wide range of genres, art receptions, poetry readings, storytelling, and open mic nights were among the main activities presented. Today, the Center continues to conduct a wide variety of events and offers classes in art and acting.
The Center is ADA compliant and unique in that it features a combination Performance Hall and Art Gallery. Performance seating is limited to 60 creating an intimate, listening venue, ideal for music lovers who appreciate fine musicianship and aren’t interested in competing with the noise typically found at a bar or cafe. The space encourages interaction between the audience and musicians resulting in a memorable experience as songs and the songwriting process are discussed.
We pride ourselves on providing a diversity of styles by talented musical performers in a family friendly environment. Expect to see soloists, duos, ensembles, and bands and hear modern and traditional forms of blues, classical, country, electronic, jazz, folk, new age, rock, and world in both acoustic and electric shows.
On behalf of our Board Members, we thank you for your support and look forward to your visiting!
