Help shape music in our community

The North Shore Music Association (NSMA) deeply values our community's interest and support. It's our mission to bring you the best eclectic local, national, and international music presentation and education possible, and to support local and regional musicians.

As our community changes in population and economy, we want to continue meeting its needs for music presentation and education in the best way possible. That's why your personal input matters so much. We hope you will take just a few minutes to complete our online survey, which will help us determine how to shape our future direction and programming. Here's the link:

Thanks again for supporting NSMA, your community music nonprofit!

What is better on Labor Day weekend than exploring the North Shore with your family? Add letterboxing to the equation and you'll be hooked on a new family hobby. Letterboxing is a recreational activity combining creativity with “treasure hunting” in parks, forests, and urban areas all around the globe. By following clues, participants track down hidden letterboxes that contain a unique, hand-carved rubber stamp. In this day-long extravaganza, Jill will first give an overview of letterboxing and its code of conduct. Then participants will design and create their own unique signature stamp to use while letterboxing. After completing their stamp, participants* will follow carefully mapped out clues to discover a hidden letterbox right near Grand Marais.
