Denison University Summer Performing Arts Program

Denison University is launching a summer performing arts festival for high school students in music, dance, and theater.  CEOMTA member Dr. Sun Min Kim (Denison University piano faculty) is teaching piano in the program.

Along with many wonderful Denison music faculty members, we have amazing guest artists as well: Ethel String Quartet and Third Coast Percussion Ensemble. It is also unique and one-of-a-kind that the festival takes place with Dance and Theater as well. You will be exposed to different aspects of performing arts, creating synergy in the liberal arts ideals.

It will be held in the new beautiful facility of Michael D Eisner Center for Performing Arts.
It is between June 24 and July 1, 2023. The cost is $1500 for tuition, room and board. There are ample opportunities for financial aid, both need based and merit. For more information:
