A Sound Plan

Triston Broadway has big plans. In his future, the Miami native sees collaboration – with educators and entertainment industry professionals – to write classical music that’s both exciting and accessible to everyone, regardless of social or economic background. That means being open to new possibilities, as an educator and an artist.

Find Your Way Here

You see it every day. In the hard work, inventive ideas and powerful collaborations that define our communities. In schools, hospitals and businesses. The everyday and extraordinary achievements that add up to the remarkable impact of UNC Greensboro.

It is true today as it has been for over 125 years: UNC Greensboro is relentlessly focused on helping each student unleash their potential and make a meaningful impact with their lives, in our community and around the world, every day.

The College of Visual and Performing Arts

Designated by the UNC System Board of Governors as an "area of distinction," CVPA transforms lives by providing exceptional artistic and academic experiences.

Built on a foundation of academic excellence, creative innovation and community engagement, CVPA offers countless performance opportunities, hands-on immersion, high-quality studio training, and personalized mentorship to 1,564 undergraduate and graduate students. The unique synergy created by housing CVPA within a public research university of nearly 20,000 students enables students to understand and embrace the artistic expression of a diversity of cultures, empowering them to enrich the human experience for themselves and others.

Whether drawing inspiration from the rich collection of the Weatherspoon Art Museum; learning from faculty mentored by Martha Graham, Ronald K. Brown, and Alvin Ailey; amplifying marginalized voices through new, original works; or performing in one of over twenty, unique ensembles, our students immerse themselves in a transformative experience that combines rigorous learning with tenacious, intentional support.
