Making Art is What We Do. The Proof Is in Our Numbers.
- More than 250 events each year
- 20,000 audience members
- More than 30 guest artists
- 4 fully-mounted mainstage theatre productions and many more laboratory productions annually
- Over 20 different musical ensembles, open to majors and non-majors
The only number that really matters is one. That is you!
In the School of Performing Arts at Virginia Tech, you will have uncommon experiences and be met with unexpected opportunities. We love what we study and teach!
We are proud to provide small class sizes to maximize student-teacher interaction. Our music, theatre, and cinema faculty work closely with our students to ignite a true passion for learning. We believe that as artists we must also be engaged citizens, working in and with our community.
We present over 150 public events each year – ranging from fully-mounted contemporary theatre productions to experimental interdisciplinary pieces, and from large symphonic concerts to documentary and narrative film. We host more than 30 nationally and internationally known guest artists in residencies every year.
While we take joy in our work, we also take your education seriously. All of our degrees are accredited by their disciplinary accrediting body (the National Association of Schools of Music or the National Association of Schools of Theatre).
