Scholarships are awarded each year allowing students to continue study over the summer at weeklong, residential workshops offered on university campuses. JMArts Scholars not only refine their own art, but they bring back new perspectives and expertise to share with other students during the academic year.
Annie. Grease. Footloose. Fiddler on the Roof. In the Heights. The Little Mermaid.
All fall musicals are produced with assistance from JMArts, which provides funding to secure performance rights and expertise to produce, direct and promote the sold-out performances our community enjoys every year.
new york arts adventure
Eight upperclass arts students spend spring break in New York City to gain new perspectives, explore one of the world’s great cities, learn in person from renowned artists and experience the very best in theater, music and visual arts.

public CONCERTS & events
In addition to assisting student concerts and art exhibitions, JMArts sponsors other free public events. Some recent examples: the world premiere of a student-produced documentary on the immigrant experience, a lecture and klezmer concert highlighting the culture of "Fiddler on the Roof," a juried art exhibition of student work inspired by JM's production of "In the Heights,” and a character breakfast for children and their parents featuring Princess Ariel and her friends from “The Little Mermaid.”
AND MUCH, MUCH MORE
Whether it's purchasing the school's grand piano, providing tickets so students can attend professional performances, arranging workshops and talkbacks with professional artists so students can learn from the very best, commissioning a short documentary to help our "In the Heights" cast understand the Washington Heights neighborhood or securing much-needed supplies for art classes, JMArts steps in to give students whatever they need to excel.
