Art, music & theatre
Fan of the arts? There are monthly exhibitions of professional and amateur artwork in the Te Paske Gallery, around 20 vocal and instrumental concerts and recitals a season in the award-winning Christ Chapel concert hall, and dramas and comedies on stage every month in the England and Allen theatres. Whether you’re a part of the art scene yourself or just enjoy watching other artists and performers, fabulous sight and sound experiences are just a walk away for students living on campus.

Sing, play, act!
All students, regardless of your major, are welcome to audition for any of our music ensembles or theatre productions. In addition to the A cappella Choir and Symphonic Band, there are smaller ensembles for vocalists and instrumentalists. Northwestern's active theatre season means there are frequent auditions and near-constant rehearsals—as well as roles for artists who like to design and create scenery, costumes, show publicity and more.
