Janet Evelyn is the Founder and Executive Director of The NICE festival in Norwalk CT.  For South Pacific: In Concert, NPT and Norwalk Symphony Orchestra are proud to partner with The Nice Festival. Janet Evelyn, Executive Director, states that a?oeNICE is committed to bringing awareness to the multiplicity of our global cultural heritage. The performing arts have not only been a conduit through which people of different race and culture can share natural commonalities but one of the most efficacious in addressing social injustice worldwide. The song a?oeCarefully Taughta?? from the musical South Pacific reminds us how important it is to expose our children at a young age to the different cultures to encourage understanding of our unique backgrounds.a?? As partnerships between the non-profit and for-profit world continue to form in order to tackle social challenges from all sides, this type of collective impact production has become increasingly relevant and a vital component of a community.
