Creativity has been identified as one of the five essential characteristics of successful people in the 21st century.

The primary mission of EFSC's Performing and Visual Arts Department is to educate and train future majors in the disciplines of music, theatre, studio art and dance. Our secondary mission is to enrich the lives of the Brevard community — including students who take our classes as non-majors and community members who attend our concerts, recitals, art shows and theatrical presentations.

Meet Kyrsten Chambers


My experience in the music program at EFSC has been amazing. I’ve not only learned how to be a better musician, but I’ve also had the opportunity to learn from brilliant musicians. The teachers in the music program are my mentors. The music faculty prepares each student for careers in music education, performance, composition and theory.  Because of my classes and my teachers, I know that I am ready to pursue more education towards a future career in vocal performance.

Performing Arts and Fine Arts/Studio Arts courses at EFSC support the A.A. degree and some A.S. degrees and are intended to help a student with pre-requisite transfer courses to help the student move on to a bachelor's program.
