Through our community outreach programs we focus on building relationships within the communities we serve, develop on-going volunteer support, collect donations to fund our community programs,
and distribute literature to spread the word about our internship programs, other community
outreach programs, and general information about CEMA community projects.
Experience world class entertainment in an intimate venue (with free parking!) without having to travel far. Long treasured by our local residents, the variety of live performances and events at CEMA Center attracts audiences from far and wide. With several flexible performance spaces and an
outdoor campus and partnerships with other community organizations and intentional
programming of our own, a diverse lineup of live events and film screenings help
fulfill our mission of All Arts, All People, All Ages.
"IT'S NEVER TOO LATE"
According to Schedule
This senior program was established to provide day trips and activities for the 55+ community through our partnerships with other organizations. Our day trips are youth senior collaborative programs to continue to promote the value of music and the arts for better health and longer life. We plan day trips to concerts, plays, museums, luncheons,
and more for the participants. All of this
is done in collaboration with diverse
partners and volunteers.
PERSONAL ENHANCEMENT DEVELOPMENT
According to Schedule
The PED programs focus on music and the arts and the role they play in the development of good character, thinking and problem solving skills, and discipline. Our goal is to help prepare children and graduating
students for a successful future by removing barriers and meeting the challenges of adolescence and adults through a coordinated progressive series of activities and experiences in the music and arts after school programs along with the internship programs for high school and college students. These programs are taught by celebrities, teachers,
community leaders, and everyday people who donate their time and money to mentor and educate the participating students and at risk youth.

The CEMA staff and volunteers work many hours planning music and arts after school programs, developing social services resources, developing special community fundraising events, holding workshops and training classes, and general operations. Collaboration and partnerships are the foundation of our projects. Without the knowledge, resources, capabilities, and manpower that partnerships can bring, we would be unable to accomplish the depth and number of programs we have developed. Likewise, without our excellence in planning and management skills, our ability to build and nurture community partnerships would not be a reality.
Keeping the arts accessible is a vital part of our mission, so CEMA Center sponsors a variety of programs each year that are free and open to the public. Annual events include CEMAFEST, art gallery talks, music lectures, exhibitions and tours, drawing thousands of community visitors. Our partnerships with other Arts Organizations brings thousands of local residents to CEMA Center for free performances by performing artists from around the world. Through our Outreach Program, we also ensure performances for school children by encouraging class trips to CEMA Center to see school show performances.
