The Averett Singers

The Averett Singers delight audiences throughout the community and the region.

Their vast musical repertoire ranges from “Te Deum” by Mozart to “How Can I Keep From Singing” to “Erev Shel Shoshamim” (Evening of Roses), an Israeli folksong that is sung in Hebrew.

Special performance tours have included: Florida, Delaware, North Carolina, New York City and New Orleans.

Art Department

Students in Averett’s art program are exposed to a range of studio work. Rather than concentrating on a single studio area, they build a balanced background in the visual arts. Art majors exhibit their work at the university’s annual spring art show, which is part of Arts@Averett. Students also hold individual shows at various locations around campus in the fall. We warmly invite you to come see their work!
