Students Under Trees

Music & the Arts

Creative sparks fly

From theatre and dance to symphonic and marching bands, a capella and improv to the visual arts, Wooster students find opportunities to participate in and enjoy the arts all over campus.

Those opportunities aren’t limited to students in a particular academic program. In theatre productions and music ensembles alike, biology and political science majors perform alongside those majoring in the arts.

Almost a third of Wooster students follow their passion for making music through two choirs, a symphony orchestra, a jazz ensemble, symphonic and marching bands, a capella groups like COWBelles and A Round of Monkeys, and other ensembles.

Each music performance, music education, and music therapy major has a solo concert senior year in Gault Recital Hall, while every studio art major mounts a public exhibition of his or her work in Ebert Art Center. Our performance calendar showcases students, faculty, and visiting artists of national and international renown, while the College of Wooster Art Museum features up to eight curated exhibitions every year.

Creativity and self-expression are more than just the province of a select few at Wooster. They’re part of the fabric of campus life.
