The fine arts are a vital part of a Tennessee Wesleyan College education and the College community. Since its founding as Athens Female College, music, art and theater have served as a basis for learning and expressing creativity. The Department comprises baccalaureate programs in art, music and theater, and its music organizations, including the Concert Choir, Chorale and Vox Humana, are strong representatives of the College’s student body. All students are eligible for admission to the music organizations through auditions. The ensembles perform sacred and secular literature for the College, the local community, churches and high schools through extended tours.
