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."
“Helping students realize their potential through the flexibility of our BA degree in music is a rewarding experience. God leads students in many different directions, and to be a small part of that process is very fulfilling.”
Terry Baldridge, PhD
