Our mission is to enrich the cultural life of the island by fostering and supporting music education and performance opportunities for young people and adults.


NMC believes that music has the power to transform individuals and our island as a whole. We envision a community with access to all aspects of music through teaching, learning, performing, and listening.


Our community is Nantucket Island, all its residents (both year-round and seasonal), and visitors, particularly our students and ensemble members, our faculty, our audiences, oru supporters, and our outreach partners.
