CHANGING THE WORLD THROUGH THE ARTS
Tomorrow's Talent Today
For more than a century, LSU has cultivated a rich tradition of musical and theatrical art forms.
We proudly carry that heritage into the 21st century, preparing our students for modern leadership roles and careers in the performing arts, as well as providing outreach and cultural enrichment to the community at-large. Mentoring and guiding our students are the unparalleled faculty of the School of Music and the School of Theatre, comprised of renowned scholars, stellar performers, vibrant creators, and inspiring teachers with active careers and international reputations for excellence.
