The lives of all Rochester residents will be enriched through music, dance, theater and creative arts as a result of the efforts of the Joseph Avenue Arts and Culture Alliance.

    Everyone in Rochester will have the opportunity to attend music, dance, theater and creative arts presentations as well as to express their own creativity through arts education offerings.

    Rochester will enjoy a vibrant arts community because of which businesses will thrive, employment opportunities will be enhanced, and residents will feel empowered.

Concerts; music and dance education opportunities for youth; performing arts camps; collaborations with existing large performing arts organizations

We have become a leader in development/sponsorship of performing arts from Rochester, New York's underserved population. Board representation includes professionals in dance, music, law, banking, non-profit leadership, foundations, library science, education, history. Board is a proponent of diversity and inclusion in all that we do. As an organization we are a major partner of Rochester's leading art gallery, university, dance, and music institutions.

For all programs we survey program leadership/teachers regarding perceived success and wants for each completed program. We ask for input from all attendees, both in writing and verbally. We monitor published reviews, both on-line and in print. Where possible we ask attendees to complete out-take forms.

We sponsor an Annual Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra Ensemble outdoor summer concert; a 10 week percussion instrument class for under 10 year olds, taught in an area library by faculty from the Eastman School of Music; transport inner city youth to area concerts; host a dance plus nutrition course for area youth, taught by faculty from Garth Fagan Dance; sponsored and coordinated an annual program bringing Eastman School of Music doctoral students in concert in three chosen libraries; developed and sponsored a dance plus reading program in area libraries; developed and sponsored an SAT Prep Course in conjunction with the Rochester City School District and day of Life Foundation. We continue to present the above programs on an annual basis. Concurrently we are renovating a former synagogue, now on the National Register of Historic Places, into a Center for Performing and Visual Arts.
