New Spire Arts is a new performing arts nonprofit that strives to provide unique performing arts opportunities for all ages and abilities. We are committed to serving the Frederick artist and arts community as well as engaging every resident of Frederick County in the arts.
When you give to New Spire Arts, you make it possible to…
…hire top-tier teaching artists for our innovative education programs
Our education programs are taught by local and regional professional artists of all disciplines. We strive to work with experienced artists that are passionate about arts education and the Frederick community.
…provide opportunities to at risk-youth and underserved communities
By working with nonprofit organizations like Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership (SHIP), Heartly House, and Children of Incarcerated Parents (COIP), New Spire Arts is able to provide arts programming to youth that might not otherwise have access.
…build a community-centered performing arts venue
New Spire Stages is under construction at 15 W Patrick St and we need the community’s support to complete the vision of a community arts hub and flexible venue. The Ausherman Family Foundation and our other major donors have generously committed over $4.6 million to the acquisition and construction of the building, but we still need to raise $615,000 so we can outfit the theatre with equipment and build the amphitheatre performance space.
