We thrive with vibrant students, accomplished faculty, high-caliber performances, challenging classes, and satisfying experiences. Anderson University is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.

Offering a wide array of degree programs and areas of study, the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance endeavors to give all students opportunities for creative experiences in the musical arts by encouraging the development of musicianship and scholarship through classes, private study, and ensembles.

Students perform in solo recitals and in orchestral, wind, and choral ensembles that tour nationally and internationally. The Boze Lyric Theatre program produces fully-staged musical theatre and opera productions each year, and AU’s recording label, Orangehaus Records, provides professional experiences for music business students.
