Musco Center for the Arts was conceived with one driving purpose: empowering Chapman University students and faculty to reach the highest levels of achievement in fine arts education, production, and performance.

Taking its place among the nation’s top university performance and education venues, Musco Center stands as a testament to Chapman University’s uncompromising standards, relentless pursuit of excellence, and passionate commitment to attracting world-class talent to our campus and our community.

Here, students and faculty hone their art forms through hands-on experience in state-of-the-art facilities. Here, the surrounding community experiences spectacular performances and productions from some of the world’s finest practitioners, on a grand scale. Here, the arts find a suitably stunning venue for achieving their highest form.
