Community, engagement, transformation
These three words summarize Castleton University’s arts programs as we continue to expand our offerings, diversify our audiences, and invite conversation from the rich tapestry of our community. Through the production of plays, musicals, concerts, and exhibitions by our three outstanding academic departments; the presentation of some of the world’s finest artists and speakers through Castleton’s renowned Soundings general education program; and our collaboration with outside partners such as Rutland’s Paramount Theatre, we are creating something very special in our corner of New England.

Indeed, the arts are thriving in Spartan Nation. Academically, our departments of Art, Music, and Theater Arts continue to educate and train the artists, arts leaders, and educators of tomorrow, with recent graduates securing positions in schools throughout the region and undertaking professional careers in epicenters of arts and culture such as New York City and Boston and as far afield as Colorado and California.
Simply put, we believe in the power of the arts to bring people together, to stimulate our senses and minds, and to encourage positive social and personal transformation.
