Hone your craft and explore your creative side in one of these exciting student organizations.
Our Student Organizations
Our group is here to help you experience and create art in a creative environment outside the classroom. As a member, you will curate student art exhibitions, help create set designs for campus theatrical productions and engage in a variety of other visual arts-oriented activities.
We perform regularly at home basketball and football games, participate in Homecoming and Midnight Madness and produce our own shows. We train to compete at the annual National Dance Alliance competition in Daytona, Florida.
We give you new opportunities to use film as an artistic medium for individual expression while creating new networks of colleagues and friends. We typically sponsor two full-length lectures during the academic year as well as two on-campus film festivals during the spring semester.
We welcome all wind, string and percussion instruments with no audition required. This is a fun, low-stress atmosphere if you want to play more classical pieces composed for concert band settings. We rehearse one night a week and perform two concerts each year, including a winter concert (Chrismas and classical pieces) and a spring concert (pop tunes and medleys from popular video games/movies).
We perform a wide range of choral music - from classical to Broadway to contemporary - and hold a solo concert at the end of each semester. This can be taken as an elective course.
This is an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of improvisation while also playing in a section using sheet music. We perform onstage at the Rogers Center for the Arts twice a year and at other events on campus. This can be taken as an elective course.
Love to march and play? Led by our Visual and Performing Arts Department, our marching band accompanies our Division I athletics program. Launching in 2020, you can be a founding member of this exciting and important opportunity. We offer band scholarships for talented musicians.
This is a liturgical music ensemble that performs at campus Mass and chapel services, as well as at interfaith events. We are open to all singers and instrumentalists in the Merrimack community. This be taken as an elective course.
We represent the sound and spirit of the Merrimack student body. Open to all majors, our instrumental group rehearses once a week with no audition required. We perform at all men’s and women’s Division I home and playoff hockey games, as well as Homecoming weekend and select football and basketball games. With pop music that ranges from OneRepublic’s Counting Stars to Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves, we create a fun and exciting atmosphere.
The OnStagers Dramatic Society is proud to be Merrimack’s oldest student organization whose mission is to foster, teach and advance the performing arts at Merrimack. We produce two major theatre shows a year, and look for students of all majors who have an interest in theatre to participate in all aspects of our productions, from technical theatre roles backstage to performing onstage. Certain OnStagers productions can be taken for course credit.
Some of our productions include Noises Off, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, My Fair Lady, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, Avenue Q, Black Comedy and Next to Normal.
