As a “Center of Distinction for the Arts,” Monmouth University exerts cultural leadership in the region providing a rich array of performances by nationally and internationally recognized artists in many disciplines including children’s musicals, family entertainment, concerts, dance recitals, cultural events, festivals, and special attractions. Monmouth University also produces professional theatre, features a visiting writers series, film festivals, continuous art exhibitions, student performances, and much, much more.
Many are complimented by special outreach programs and arts education opportunities facilitated by distinguished guest artists. This year they include master classes and workshops in areas such as stage performance technique, songwriting skills, violin and guitar technique, gospel and classical vocals, acting, and the latest technology in the music industry.
Financial support is crucial to its success, particularly since ticket sales return only a portion of its overall expense. The remainder must be raised through corporate sponsorships, grants, and most importantly individual gifts from patrons.
No successful arts group can exist without these essential sources of support. By becoming a member of the “Friends of the Arts” at Monmouth University you will be supporting one of the most prestigious arts programs in the region.
