Performing Arts

The Morningside University School of Visual and Performing Arts is an integral part of our foundation and community. Vocal, visual, and instrumental arts are traditions Morningside has upheld since the school’s founding. All performing arts are open to any student on campus, regardless of major. You could be a defining part of upholding Morningside’s long-standing traditions, including the singing of the “Morningside Hymn” with the President after choir concerts, or a rousing fight song after a big score!

From full ensemble offerings in choral and instrumental music to theatre and musical theatre productions, there is a place for you in the performing arts at Morningside. Learn alongside world class musicians and music educators who make up our incredible Performing Arts faculty in small, close-knit courses and class cohorts. Want to see the world? Morningside ensembles regularly tour regionally, nationally and internationally, with plans to tour in South Africa in 2024.
