Who We Are

North Shore Arts Angels Inc. is a non-profit educational foundation established in 2014 to expand the role of enhancing arts education that was established by the Arts Angels booster club.  Founded by a small group of parents in 2004, the booster club provided funds to teachers in the music, fine arts and theater departments to pay for equipment, services and program support not covered in the school district budget.  NSAA Inc. was formed to carry on that tradition and to expand opportunities directly by creating independent programs in the arts that complement and augment the district's offerings.  

Vivian Parisi (2017) Board Chair

Julia Brennan (2017) President

Claudia Ames (2019) & Gina Brown (2018) Vice Presidents

Maria Schwab (2019)  Secretary

Michele Manfredi (2018) Treasurer

Dalia Rodriguez, by virtue of her position as Director of Fine and Performing Arts at North Shore, is an ex-officio member of the board.  Terryl Donovan, who held the same position until her retirement in June 2015, serves as an advisor.

North Shore Arts Angels, while independent of the school district, is grateful for the support and cooperation of the North Shore Board of Education
