Oberlin Center for the Arts donate

Performing Artists in Residence

With generous support from The Nord Family Foundation, The Stocker Foundation and the Ohio Arts Council (OCA was the statewide winner of the 2018 Snap Grant Challenge)

Beginning in April 2019, OCA launched the Performing Artists in Residence, or “PAIR” Program, partnering with students from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Mercy Allen Hospital and Welcome Nursing Home. 

The PAIR program introduces music, in lobbies and along bedsides, capitalizing on the art form’s ability to help alleviate pain, reduce stress and decrease overall recovery time. Further, PAIR provides an opportunity to foster personal connections amongst students and fellow Oberlin residents. We are currently developing Phase 2 of this program, growing the scope to include more performers and additional performance sites.
