From art and theatre to band and chorus, the visual and performing arts thrive at UW-Manitowoc. Students and community members have many opportunities to enjoy the arts as both spectators and participants.

  • The Lakeshore Wind Ensemble plays a full spectrum of music from symphonic band literature, including dramatic classical works, rousing marches, swinging big band tunes and lyrical ballads.
  • The Lakeshore Big Band performs the exciting and ever popular songs of the big band and jazz-swing era.
  • The UW-Manitowoc Chorus¬†students¬†participate in chorus through a partnership with the Capitol Civic Centre Community Chorale conducted by Jim and Susie Miller.
  • The University Theatre produces two major shows a year, and sometimes offers additional productions such as guerilla theater events.
  • The Founders Hall Art Gallery features both professional and student works throughout the academic year and is open to the public.
