Friends of the Performing Arts

The Friends of the Performing Arts ensures that the programs for theater, choir, band, orchestra, and dance in the Amherst regional public schools get the funding and support they need as the essential basis of a complete education.

Replace damaged and exceedingly-old, poor-sounding loaner instruments with new ones.


Renovate performance spaces and create needed space for set construction and storage.
