"What creative energy this will generate! Like a pebble interrupting a pond′s placid surface, the center will invite expression in ever–widening circles. I foresee a thriving music program, student recitals, a variety of concerts, and some of the best musicians in the country stopping at Trine as they commute from Chicago to Cleveland or East Lansing to Indianapolis."
— Mark Kays, Director of Bands and Music Programs, Trine University
"The past fascinates me here at Trine, and I always hope that the University connects to the fine traditions of performing arts here in Angola. Drama has been part of our culture. The T. Furth Center for the Performing Arts will reinforce the communal nature of the arts here in northeast Indiana and beyond."
— Dr. Tim Hopp, Chair–elect of the Department of Languages & Humanities, Drama Club adviser, Trine University
