Who understands that music, dance, theatre, and art are important in relating to other disciplines? Who craves artistic classes as part of your curriculum? You're creative. You're unconventional. But you're so much more. We are your canvas, We are your stage. We are your school. NKU School of the Arts.
As venues around the world go dark, we're launching a series of performances and creative endeavors by NKU SOTA students, alumni, and faculty entitled NKU SOTA Stream. Join us in celebrating SOTA artists as we highlight their artistic creativity.
Amy Gillingham and the NKU Orchestra program were featured on KET's Kentucky Life. The segment runs from the beginning of the episode for about 8 minutes and is currently running on PBS.
The CD recording "The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom" written by faculty composer Kurt Sander was nominated for a Grammy Award for the category of "Best Choral Performance." Jason Vest was nominated for a Grammy with his group Conspirare for Best Choral Performance for their recording of “The Hope of Loving.” Also congratulations to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and our CSO-affiliated music faculty for "Transatlantic" being nominated for Best Orchestral Performance (Michael Culligan, Scott Lang, Owen Lee, and Dwight Parry).
NKU SOTA took part in the Cincinnati BLINK 2019 Art & Light Festival with a unique concert collaboration entitled "LightStreams." Experience the dynamic effects of movement and color of illuminated suspended canoes while the NKU Philharmonic Orchestra performs music by Bedřich Smetana, Miguel Roig-Francolí, and John Botter.
Whether we are producing a material or utilizing our dance classes to collaborate with theraputic exercise in health sciences, we are on the cutting edge of transdisciplinary studies. Yes, we're hosting concerts, but we're also preparing students to produce better rock n' roll shows. We can teach you to feel comfortable in front of the camera, which could lead to dozens of careers. Here, you will dance, you will sing, and most of all, you will achieve.
