Arts/ Entertainment/ Music/ Activities

A number of significant cultural events' series that are open to all MSU students add to the interest and excitement of campus life. In addition to presenting the talents of our students and faculty through these activities, students are exposed to distinguished artists from across the nation and around the world. The Department of Theater and Dance presents several plays and dance concerts in five performance venues on campus each semester. Similarly, the Cali School of Music offers major concerts in various venues several times each semester, as well as weekly vocal and instrumental performances in its Jed Leshowitz Recital Hall. The Department of Art & Design's Art Forum and Film Forum speakers' series presents weekly afternoon talks by visual artists and filmmaking professionals. The Department of Communication Studies likewise sponsors events including the Danis Eaton Public Speaking Scholarship Competition. The Department of Broadcasting produces Carpe Diem (a weekly show aired on Cablevision Channel 77, Comcast Channel 26, and Montclair Channel 34), twenty annual episodes of Inside MSU; and regularly collaborates with NJN. The University Art Galleries, including the award winning George Segal Gallery and MFA Art Gallery, sponsors regular art exhibitions of contemporary artists and enrolled MSU students, while the college's new Creative Research Center offers opportunities to engage with interdisciplinary projects and subject matter. And finally, Office of Arts & Cultural Programming produces Peak Performances at Montclair, the acclaimed annual season of innovative dance, music, theater and performance artists, featuring world and regional premieres in the university's state-of-the-art Alexander Kasser Theater (one of six performance facilities on campus.) Enrolled undergraduates receive one ticket to all Peak Performances events at no additional charge by presenting a valid MSU student ID at the Kasser Theatre box office.
