​​​​The new performing arts center was designed by an award-winning team of architects and technical consultants, including the architectural firms of Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture and Amenta/Emma as well as JaffeHolden(Acoustics) and Fisher Dachs Associates (Theatre).

Classical music has been known to bear abundant benefits for all age groups.  We believe that training  children in classical music results in fortitude, concentration and strong work ethics.  JUMY Foundation would like to encourage, promote and reward the efforts of youngsters who strive their best.
 In collaboration with the Department of Music at Western Connecticut State University (WCSU)  and enthusiastic  support and guidance of Dr. Russell Hirshield,
 JUMY Foundation have launched  the annual "J.Y. Park Piano Competition"  in 2014.  
JUMY Foundation is privileged to hold this event at a newly unveiled state-of -art performing arts center.
