We’re Moving:

On December 18 and 19, 2017, our offices are moving to our new home at:

All Saints Church,  10 Irving Street, Worcester, MA  01609

  • Look for signs inside the building to find your way to our 2nd floor office and 3rd floor teaching studios.
  • If visiting:  Please call ahead  to check on staff availability for December 2017 and January 2018; watch for updates on staffing hours as we move through 2018.
  • Entry into the Church is at the rear, off the parking lot.
  • Please use designated Pakachoag parking spaces.  On-street parking is available on Irving Street with meter.  Also the Pleasant Street parking garage, two blocks south.

Phone and e-mail contact information remains the same.

Registering?

Enrolled/renewing families are welcome to leave registration forms and payments in the new, secure drop box at 203 Pakachoag Street, Education Wing lobby.   The Education Wing is open during class and lesson time.  Look to your left (toward the Fellowship Hall doors) to find the lock box.   You are also welcome to mail in or drop off registration forms and payments to 10 Irving Street (call ahead if you wish to connect directly with a staff member); or, register online with credit card.

Already enrolled?

All Music Together classes will continue as currently scheduled.  No changes are planned.

Some private lesson studios will rotate out of 203 Pakachoag Street and move to All Saints Church starting in February.  Please check with your teacher or the office if you have questions regarding your lesson schedule.

Our Theater program is continuing at Emanuel Lutheran Church on Greenwood Street for the school year.

Why the Move?

The School’s move into Worcester responds to long-term strategic needs, along with changes underway at Pakachoag Church.  We’re excited to link more closely with Worcester’s cultural community, to be able to position ourselves for future growth, and to build on pre-existing partnerships with All Saints Church and The Hanover Theater.

If you would like more information about the School’s move and associated strategic planning, please e-mail Executive Director Sarah Smongeski at Sarah@pakmusic.org.
