The Department of Fine Arts and Communication consists of three main areas of instruction: Music (MUS, MUO, MUA) Visual Arts (ART), and Speech and Theater (SPT). Our highly-qualified, experienced, and caring faculty provides quality instruction through courses for both the student choosing to major in one of these areas and for the general student population. Please consult the college catalog for a complete list and description of all courses.
Pearl River Community College has also made a huge commitment to the future of the arts in south Mississippi with the 2013 opening of the Ethel Holden Brownstone Center for the Arts. The ten-million dollar Brownstone Center is a state-of-the-art facility with an 850-seat theatre, ample backstage support area, and spacious lobby with visual arts display space. The facility adjoins newly renovated rehearsal areas for instrumental, choral, and dance ensembles and is located in close proximity to the new instructional and office space for the Fine Arts and Communications Department in Moody Hall.
A variety of arts events and performances are presented by the college’s award-winning performing ensembles, visual art students and theater program. The department also hosts guest concerts and recitals on campus throughout the year. These events are held either in Malone Chapel or in the Ethel Holden Brownstone Center for the Arts and are open to the public. Please consult the schedule of events for a current list of upcoming performances and ticket information. Further information about The Brownstone Center and the current season of events can be found at www.brownstonecenter.com.
