Arts and Culture

Arts and culture abound in Winston-Salem, named “one of the most culturally active cities in the country.” Enjoy a thriving downtown arts district and a renowned symphony, opera theatre, National Black Theatre Festival and the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art. From Gallery Hops to Jazz on 4th to concerts (rock, country, alternative) at the Joel Coliseum, there’s always something going on!

From your first days on campus, you may be active in the Salem Dance Company, Chorale, Chamber Choir, Gospel Choir or Pierrettes drama group. Salem students also participate in the marching band at nearby Wake Forest University.

"Salem College students and faculty are directly involved in the thriving arts community of Winston-Salem. Through hands-on experience on campus and in this vibrant city, you can create and actively pursue your goals within the world of art, music, dance and drama."
– Erin Hylton, class of 2010, an Art History Major, from Bronx, NY
