Our 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art Bell Center is a
magnificent home for the music program. The 540-seat Mabee Performing Arts hall offers an exceptionally high-tech sound environment with the best in audiovisual equipment, offering an ideal environment your musical performances.
"Being a part of the MNU choirs has been a life changing experience. Whether we are singing on the stage of Bell, at a 20 member church in a town we've never heard of or on the steps of the Thomas Jefferson memorial in Washington D.C, each performance is the road trip of a lifetime."
“It is a pleasure to work with the talented and committed students that we have at MNU. The future of music is bright!”
John Leavitt, DMA
Our professors have real-world performance and conducting experience. Dr. John Leavitt, choral director, routinely takes students to perform in venues such as Carnegie Hall and Washington, D.C.
