A message from our Department Chair:

Colleagues, Students, Alumni and Friends:

2017-18 is an exciting year for our department.  I am delighted to welcome you to our newly integrated Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance; a vibrant group of intellectually curious and creative students, faculty, and staff that now merges Theatre with our Music and Dance programs. Over the coming months you will see numerous new and exciting collaborative opportunities and performances, but most important, by joining with our Theatre colleagues, our close-knit Departmental faculty community of exceptionally talented and committed performing artists and educators will bring ever more stellar programs of study to West Michigan. This innovative website is just one of many positive changes. In the coming weeks, check back often for updates concerning our newly renovated and expanded Performing Arts Center. We hope that very soon you will find opportunities to visit our new facilities and join us for the many exciting events taking place this year!

Dr. Danny Phipps
