Our Mission

The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is a (501) c3 not-for-profit organization operated solely by a volunteer Board of Directors with a passionate commitment to the arts and service to the public.

All programming, artistic selection, presentation, public relations and fundraising is done entirely by volunteers. This allows all of our funding to go directly to artistic fees, community outreach, and the operation of the organization.

Untermyer Performing Arts has dedicated itself to community service since its formation in 1976. All of our events always have been and continue to be presented free of charge.

We are especially proud of our Untermyer Performing Arts Junior Team, organized by board member Zafiro Acevedo, who assist with setup, cleanup, program distribution, and snack sales.


We are grateful to our major funders: the City of Yonkers and ArtsWestchester. We also thank the many local family-owned businesses and individuals who support our work.
