Community Engagement

The Peace Center’s Community Engagement initiatives seek to tell stories, amplify voices, educate and inspire through the arts. Our aim in community engagement is to create a more inclusive Peace Center by partnering with organizations to increase accessibility to programming, to represent the vast diversity of our community, and to be a welcoming space for all to experience performing arts.

Fine Arts Center Artists-In-Residence

A first of its kind, this program provides students with instruction and mentorship from world-class artists in dance, jazz, and classical music, with the goal of significantly enhancing their confidence and achievement as young artists.

The four-week program culminates in demonstrations and performances at the Peace Center.

Fine Arts Center Concert Series

These performances prepare up-and-coming student musicians for a career in the arts and entertainment industry by providing them a resume-building, professional opportunity to perform in paid settings.

Master Classes

Learn from the Masters! Emerging artists are given valuable access to world-class performers in the fields of music, dance, and musical theater. Master classes provide coaching and mentoring to assist young artists in reaching their artistic and professional goals.

Cultural master classes and workshops are free for ticket holders of the accompanying performances. Participants grow from personal feedback while observers gain a unique insight into the mind of a professional musician and the mastery necessary to achieve a high-quality performance.

Peace Perks

The Peace Center is invested in making live arts accessible to our broader community. Schools and non-profit organizations serving under-resourced communities can request tickets for students and families to attend matinee or evening performances.


Peace Perks is generously supported by the Farr family.
