Arts Overview

Every student here has the opportunity to grow in aesthetic and cultural understanding while creatively communicating his image of himself and his world, through music, art, and live performance. 

We stage a minimum of two major theater productions, two choral/band concerts, and two orchestra concerts annually in which students showcase their developing talents for the community.

Students at MUS can get hands-on experience in music composition and performance, sculpting, painting, photography, printmaking, set design, and stage management and performance.
