Honoring the past.
Building a dream.

Decades ago the dream to build a campus home for the fine arts began. Now is the time to realize the dream. The strength and tradition of the music and drama programs at Tabor College made them the heart of the college since the beginning. They are symbols of distinction that have touched thousands of lives and proclaimed God’s glory.

“I am creating something new. There it is! Do you see it?” – Isaiah 43:19 (CEV)

Time Lapse of the Construction

What are we building?

1. A place of learning

Additional classrooms, musical practice rooms and instructional space offer the capacity to serve greater numbers of undergraduate students each semester. Preserving and enhancing the Tabor experience of a faith-based educational community for future generations.

2. A place for community

The whole campus will be together again. After substantial growth the student body has outgrown all meeting places. This building will allow the entire campus to once again come together in worship and community. Protecting the heritage of deep community and life-long friends.

3. A place for the arts

A comprehensive fine arts performance venue and worship center will enhance the liberal arts education for students. The facility features a functional stage for the music and drama programs, a studio theater, recital hall and gallery space for the visual arts. Programming to enrich students’ education.
