Dordt encourages all Christians to take an active role in culture and to use the fine arts as a response of praise to God and in service of those around them. The fine arts events that take place on Dordt each semester bring together a fine array of talent from the local area and across the country.
You don’t have to be majoring in the arts in order to participate—any student who is interested in participating in music, theatre, or art is welcome to join an ensemble, audition for a play, or sign up for an art class.
With more than eight music ensembles on campus, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in music at Dordt. Our Wind Symphony, Chamber Orchestra, and Concert Choir tour extensively in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Can't find the ensemble for you? Create your own small group or band with your peers.
Check out our events to see find out when upcoming choral and instrumental concerts are scheduled.
Dordt's theatre arts department produces plays and musicals in the fall and spring, performing them in the Te Paske Theatre and Dordt's black box Fourth Avenue Theatre. You can act, design costumes, do hair and makeup, build sets, work with lights and sound, stage manage, and more.

Art is everywhere on Dordt's campus. It can be found outside—in sculptures like the Gift and the burning bush—and inside, in the Campus Center art gallery and in the galleries in the art department. Take an art class and you'll get to explore your creative side.

Utilize your artistic gifts to serve our community in corporate worship. Joining a worship ensemble enables you to grow your musical gifts as we gather together to praise God. The production arts team works to create a beautiful aesthetic, drawing together audio, video, lighting, and stage design.
