No matter what your interests are, we have something for you.
By participating in our instrumental ensembles, choir programs, Theatre Arts Program or dance, you'll have the opportunity to develop and showcase your talents with students and faculty who share your passion for performance! Our program brings together performing arts majors and non-performing arts majors, who are here studying something else and want to keep music, theatre, or dance a part of their lives.
For those that want to take their interest even further, we offer a BA in Theatre Arts with concentrations in acting and musical theatre as well as a dance minor, theatre arts minor and a music minor with interesting and exciting courses as well as private lessons in all instruments and voice parts. Our classroom courses, also open to all majors, will teach you about all kinds of fascinating music, classical to contemporary, new and old.
We invite all interested students to schedule an audition and becoming a member of our performing arts family. Auditioning doesn't commit you to anything, it's just a way for you to learn a bit more about our program, see our facilities, and meet some current members. Financial assistance in the form of Performing Arts Grants may be available. Visit the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts for details on upcoming performances.
