Performing Arts

Anderson University’s performing arts community is thriving with vibrant students, accomplished faculty, high-caliber performing arts events, challenging classes, and collaborative student experiences. We are committed to the artistic, intellectual, and personal growth of students through the performance and study of diverse musics within a community of artists and scholars. Our success is further distinguished by our institutional accreditation with the National Association of Schools of Music.

The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance is a place where creative energy runs high. Students learn and grow in a nurturing and stimulating environment. This is a place where you can realize your dreams and begin a promising professional life. Anderson University encourages artistic, intellectual, and personal development.

Students have opportunities for creative experiences in the musical arts by developing their musicianship and scholarship in classes, private study, and ensembles.

Students perform in solo recitals and in orchestral, wind, and choral ensembles that tour nationally and internationally. The Boze Lyric Theatre program produces fully-staged musical theatre and opera productions each year. AU’s record label, Orangehaus Records, along with Orangehaus Publishing, provide professional experiences for music business students.
