Arts Alive Nassau

We are an Arts education nonprofit, founded in 2012. Our mission is to provide free or low-cost music and arts instruction for Nassau County children who would have little or no access to them.

How We Serve the Community

We provide after-school classes in art, music, movement, and theatre for students in the Nassau elementary schools. There is no cost to the families, unless an instrument rental is required.  We have added new programs that are available to local students, even in surrounding counties: The First Coast Singers and the Nassau Youth Orchestra.  In 2019-2020, we contracted with the Nassau County School Board to house Artists in Residence at three of the local elementary schools. 

First Coast Singers

In 2018, Arts Alive Nassau founded a community youth chorus for students, ages 10-15. The group is available to any interested students in the local area. First Coast Singers is directed by Jonathan Welch, a voice teacher at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville.

Nassau Youth Orchestra

Founded in 2019, our latest community music offering is a youth strings orchestra. It is comprised of students from 10-18 who play violin, viola, and cello. The director is Marj Dutilly, a local strings instructor.
