Arts Empowering Life has opened a new, multipurpose Performing Arts Center in Brewster, MA. The center’s design was inspired by the four elements — earth, wind, fire, and water- with environmental sustainability in mind. Constructed during the pandemic, the center aims to foster creativity and exploration for all ages.

This fall, the center will introduce new programs for the Cape Cod community, including the Outer Cape Winds community Wind Ensemble and an Arts & Entertainment Lecture Series. The Arts Empowering Life Ensembles will perform throughout the year at the center. The center will also be home to the annual summer Performing Arts Camps for students in Grades K-12, with workshops in theatre, percussion, strings, woodwinds, and brass.

AEL incorporates performing ensembles and visual artists. Together, they have toured 26 countries and performed at iconic venues like Rockefeller Center and the Sienna Cathedral. According to the press release, the new Performing Arts Center “fulfills a vision to provide a place to forge new paths and pursue excellence in the arts for generations to come.”
