About Us

The Department of Music and Theatre Arts plays an important and multifaceted role at Shippensburg University. It provides for the academic, artistic and social development of many students each year, and it reaches out to the greater Shippensburg community and beyond with performances and ambassador opportunities

Find your creative outlet....

From Jazz Ensemble to Madrigal Singers to Children's Theatre, if you're looking for a place to pursue a creative passion or discover a new one, you'll find it in the Department of Music and Theatre Arts.

Play your part in something big...

As a member of one of our many ensembles and organizations, you will not only serve as a representative of Shippensburg University, you will also play an integral part in something bigger than yourself. In groups big and small, you'll become a small piece of a work of art that will represent the creativity, skill, and community that can be found in abundance at Ship.

Lead from the front...

There are few other places on campus where you will find more opportunities to take on a leadership role than within the Music and Theatre Arts Department. Many of our ensembles and organizations depend on student leadership to ensure smooth logistics and a great experience for everyone involved.

Here you'll find opportunities to learn about organizational management, personal responsibility, and how to work effectively with a diverse group of people. You'll learn what it means to truly lead and have a positive impact on your community.

Be a world traveler...

Music and Theatre Arts Department groups regularly travel both throughout the country and around the world.

You might find yourself in Belfast, Ireland with the Concert Choir, Los Angeles, CA with the Jazz Ensemble, or performing for the Pope in Rome with the Marching Band.
