The value of the arts at Concordia University Chicago is immeasurable.

Students, faculty and staff lead and participate directly in show-stopping productions and exhibits. From Shakespeare to Bach, from alternative theater to a premier exhibit by the latest trendsetting local painters, Concordia-Chicago offers a wealth of artistic experiences to our campus and our community.
