We challenge and inspire students of dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts to take their places as global citizens, in the belief that the arts provoke, respond, and are responsible.

Through innovative education and experience, the College of Visual and Performing Arts prepares students for contemporary careers requiring skill, collaboration, creativity, and perseverance.  We produce and present diverse, high quality, and affordable arts and entertainment as one of the most active cultural centers in Western New York.

View our calendar of events, browse our departmental web sites, and come for a visit. Feel free to contact me directly for more information.
