Welcome to the Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre, and Dance!
We are excited to begin the 2020-21 academic year with new programs, and renewed energy to make Lehman’s performing arts programs a destination for student creativity even in the midst of a pandemic.
Our programs put students in the spotlight. Whether you are a musician, dancer, or actor, we have performance opportunities for you from choral singing, jazz bands, urban and improvisational dance, to contemporary drama. And you don’t have to be a major to perform with us! Our programs prepare the next generation of teachers, composers, playwrights, directors, and arts managers. Our multimedia programs engage the latest in digital audio and video technology with access to one of the finest recording studios in New York City. Courses in Entrepreneurship, Performing Arts Management, Music Therapy, Stagecraft, along with Professional Internships and Practicum provide professional experience and insight to start your career in the performing arts.
On behalf of all the performing arts faculty, I invite you to join us this year. Attend a virtual performance, audition for an ensemble, take a class - we look forward to welcoming you!
Diana M. Battipaglia, D.M.A
Professor and Chair
