The arts play a vital role in society

24 Apr 2017

The arts play a significant role in stimulating creativity and enhancing our lives.

But did you know there’s a relationship between arts education and high achievement in reading and writing as well as high verbal SAT scores?

Following a highly successful fundraising effort, York College dedicated the Bartholomew Performing Arts Center in October 2015. The college’s premier music and communication programs will benefit from this first-rate space, which will host a teaching facility focused on the day-to-day needs of students as well as a quality venue for productions and concerts.   

Spring 2016 was the inaugural semester for the new facility. The $3.5 million center is 11,000 square feet and features a multi-form theater, choral rehearsal space, practice rooms and more.
