Performing Arts

The following performing arts groups fall within the Office of Student Engagement. Additionally, there are a few other performing arts organizations on campus outside of this list but they do not receive funding or support from our office.

  • Jazz Band

    Saxophonists perform together.

    Jazz band members perform at various campus events throughout the year, and host two annual concerts — one in the fall and another in the spring.

  • Music Ministry

    Altar servers hold a cross in the chapel.
    Students of all faiths are encouraged to join Music Ministry, an ensemble of piano players, organists, trained cantors, guitar players, woodwinds and percussion that perform together at College masses.
  • Orchestra

    String, brass and woodwind musicians are invited to join the Manhattan College Orchestra. This group performs a concert each semester and plays a varied symphonic repertoire.

  • Pipes and Drums

    If green is Manhattan College's signature color, then its signature sound is the bagpipes, a musical tradition our Pipes and Drums band has carried on with flair since 1981.

  • Players

    Aspiring Broadway stars finesse their performance skills with the Manhattan College Players, a student-led ensemble of actors and singers who put on a play in the fall and a musical in the spring, along with cabarets each semester.
