Inspire!  Engage!  Enlighten! 

Touring Performances

The McGlothlin Center for the Arts presents artists of regional, national and international fame every year. The MCA strives to showcase artists and performing styles that are not frequently featured in Southwest Virginia, providing E&H students and the greater community with the opportunity to experience artists at the cutting edge of their fields.

Student Performances

Many opportunities are available to students to participate in music ensembles and theatre productions. Both majors and non-majors are encouraged to audition at the start of every semester. Senior art majors give exhibitions under the guidance of faculty to showcase their work.

Faculty Exhibitions & Performances

Emory & Henry arts faculty members are all celebrated artists in their fields beyond working with their students. They give frequent recitals and exhibitions, perform in various ensembles, conduct local music groups, or direct, design or act in professional theatre productions. Many of these outside activities are brought to campus to share with the community. 


Lyceum designates an opportunity to encounter the liberal arts through special events on campus.  Each year, Emory & Henry features concerts, lectures, theatre and dance performances, films, exhibits, and poetry readings that help to complete your academic experience. The vast majority of these events are part of the college’s popular Lyceum program
