The School of Fine and Performing Arts
is one of the finest arts schools in the Southeast. Our programs have helped create successful and internationally recognized musicians, actors, and artists. Our art, music, and theatre departments enjoy a low student-to-faculty ratio, offering students a conservatory-style education rooted in the liberal arts. Performance opportunities abound, beginning as early as the freshman year.
Whether your plans include teaching high school band or choir, singing at the Metropolitan Opera, or running a private piano studio, we can help you achieve your goal. At Shorter, we care about our students and are committed from the practice room to the final performance. Our alums are successfully teaching, performing, and leading in their respective communities.
We invite you to campus to experience the excitement for yourself! You can arrange a meeting with admission counselors, shadow a current student for a day, or audition for one of our many scholarships or ensembles. Apply today by clicking on the links for the music or theatre application. We look forward to meeting you and helping you take your next step in your chosen career!
All my best,
Tara Warfield, D.M.A.
