||The Hudson Riverfront Performing Arts Center, Inc. (HRPAC) is a New
Jersey nonprofit organization whose mission it is to create and build
a regional performing arts center on the spectacular Hudson River waterfront
in Weehawken, New Jersey.
HRPAC's goal is to serve residents of Hudson County, as well as
those of the surrounding North Jersey/New York metropolitan area,
by presenting high-quality and reasonably-priced professional music,
theatre and dance. The center will be unique in providing an intimate
performance setting, specifically designed to foster a close relationship
between performer and audience member, while at the same time taking
advantage of the magnificent vistas of midtown Manhattan. HRPAC looks
forward to expanding live performance opportunities in the area and
providing an artistic and educational resource to the children of
the County, many of whom have never attended a live musical or theatrical
presentation. The center's presentations will be multi-cultural in
recognition of Hudson County's diverse population.
The most recent Hudson County Master Plan highlighted the need and
desirability of a new performing arts center in the County. It is
the belief of HRPAC's Board of Trustees that this performing arts
center should reside in Weehawken, on the West bank of the Hudson.
HRPAC is actively producing concerts on a year-round basis. Summer
Concerts on the Hudson is a free outdoor series presented at Lincoln
Harbor Park, adjacent to the potential site of the permanent arts
center. The UBS Atrium Series presents free lunchtime concerts in
the atrium lobby of 1000 Harbor Boulevard from October through May.
As an adjunct to this series, visiting artists participate in arts-in-education
programs, sharing their passion and talent with area students. An
eclectic mix of music has been and will continue to be offered, including
jazz, classical, pop, folk, and cabaret.
HRPAC looks forward to becoming a major cultural and educational
resource for the North Hudson region.
