School of the Arts

The School of the Arts (SOA) is made up of two departments in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts (HFA)—Music and Theatre, and Art and Art History. Ensembles include The North State Symphony, Jazz X-Press, Chico State Bands, Opera Workshop, and the CSU, Chico Choirs. Each year we present six or more theatre productions. Additionally, we sponsor four or more Department of History lectures. SOA galleries include The Turner and University Art Gallery.
