West Virginia Wesleyan College supports community performing arts and music efforts


Students who wish to engage in the culture surrounding their college may want to consider attending a school that supports community arts. For example, West Virginia Wesleyan College (WVWC) hosts the annual Arts Alive Series in order to promote local efforts.

The series features events such as a faculty art show, a dance presentation by Step Afrika, a student poetry recital, a performance of the Vagina Monologues, a touchable art show and theater productions, among others. In addition, the school hosts an annual WVWC Invitational High School Jazz Festival.

Senior thesis exhibitions, such as a production of the play Doubt, will also be presented, as well as a student-judged art exhibit. The school's wind and percussion ensembles, concert band, and jazz groups each hold concerts as part of the program.

The Wesleyan Singers and Concentus Vocum performs each year with the help of directors Larry Parsons and Sarah Carr.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of musicians, singers and performing artists is expected to increase over the next several years.
