Western North Carolina is a region rich in the arts, and the newly named, David Orr Belcher College of Fine and Performing Arts (CFPA) brings together the traditions and resources of the region with the talent of our students to serve as the heart of art and culture in WNC. The Belcher College of Fine and Performing Arts combines training with performance, community engagement and business, along with entrepreneurship skills to prepare young musicians, actors, writers, film makers, directors, visual artists and designers for diverse careers in the art, film and performance industries.
Over the past years, CFPA has grown exponentially, with over 700 students across the college! Please visit the links below to learn more about what is going on in each of our units, including Bardo Arts Center and the Friends of the Arts.
