The Jonathan Williams Center for the Performing Arts (JWCPA) was incorporated in December 2016, the board was organized and met in January 2017 and received our 501c3 status in February. We bring a wealth of knowledge with over 80 years combined certified experience in music education (public and private sectors). Going on our fourth year as a nonprofit 501c3 organization, we have performed over 23 showings of notable titles in the Beaumont and Houston areas. I promised my students over 16 years ago that we would have a performing arts center. It took some time to formally organize because of responsibilities in the classroom. But after retirement in June of 2016, it felt like the right time! Now I can dedicate my attention to developing an organization the Beaumont community and Southeast Texas is proud to call their own.

The Jonathan Williams Center for the Performing Arts provides an invaluable opportunity for children in the community. They learn so much, enjoy so much, and develop a sense of pride in their participation in the many programs offered by the JWCPA. This is one organization I will always work to support.
