COF Performing Arts

Improvise a soaring jazz solo, conduct a symphony, discover some new dance moves, or try your hand at directing.

Join the orchestra, chorus, dance ensemble, theater troupe and jazz band, all part of the COF Performing Arts program. Students, faculty and staff can find an opportunity to explore an interest or improve advanced skills. Students can also minor in performing arts through an academic program that integrates performing experience with classroom studies.
