Newark Symphony Hall works directly with educators, leaders and local organizations to enhance opportunities in our city for those interested in pursuing an education in the arts. By dedicating the time and focus to build relationships with our community, we are able to offer a unique resource for aspiring musicians, songwriters, dancers, singers, actors, and spoken word artists. With our ever-expanding programming, workshops and academy, we support and improve our city through creative partnerships and guidance.

From the Children’s Performing Arts Academy, including its Newark Symphony Hall Youth Chorus, to Arts on Stage, to Soul Line Dancing, the Hall provides a variety of programs that serve the passions and ambitions of a community with a devoted history of celebrating the arts.
