King University News :: King’s Performing & Visual Arts Program to host Audition Day for Prospective Students on Feb. 9

Prospective King College students will have the opportunity to explore the arts during the College’s “Performing Visual Arts (PVA) Audition Day” to be held on Saturday, Feb. 9.  King offers students the chance to discover and develop their creative talents through majors in music, photography, and theatre.

This day will be a chance for students to check out our arts programs,” said Elizabeth Dollar, associate director of Theatre and director of King’s Theatre program.  “They will meet with faculty and current student artists, and receive a first-hand look at the exceptional music, theatre, and photography programs we have at King.”

“PVA Audition Day” is an exciting chance for prospective students to experience what King’s Performing Visual Arts has to offer.  Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m., with activities beginning at 9 a.m., including a tour of King’s campus.  

Throughout their visit, students will have the chance to check out each of King’s Performing Visual Arts majors, including music, photography, and theatre.  Students will also have the opportunity to audition for their respective major.  Representatives will be available to answer questions about the admissions process along with potential career opportunities in the arts. 

Students participating will have opportunities for scholarship funding towards their PVA degree at King.  Scholarships are available for photography, music (instrumental and vocal), and theatre.  Music and theatre both offer participatory scholarships; however, in order to be eligible to receive a photography scholarship, students must major in that program.

“Our faculty look forward to meeting fresh, young artists who hunger to develop their abilities in a transformative environment,” commented Dollar.  “At King, students will find a community deeply immersed in the arts.”
