Simply walking outside of your dorm or classroom brings you face-to-face with important and innovative artists and performance spaces. You'll find opportunities to perform at legendary venues and in new spaces. Gig, perform, create, audition, collaborate — the opportunities are endless and yours to take as you chart your course as an artist and performer.

  • Our world-class performing arts building, Arnhold Hall, is designed for artists of all kinds, with state-of-the-art practice rooms, recording facilities, sound booths, ensemble classrooms, adjustable performance spaces, and percussion classrooms. The Bank Street facility, home of our MFA programs, has a black box performance space with state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems.
