Dr. Craig Ralston
Professor of Music • Chair, Division of Fine Arts • Chair, Department of Music
It’s about the journey. He dreams about helping students catch a vision for the arts and international culture – often in faraway places.
Then he takes them there.
A few years ago, Dr. Ralston led a study trip to Italy where he conducted three concerts on-stage in Rome. In 2008, he
led another group to Vienna, Venice, and Paris.
“I get excited when students walk through a museum or hear a concert and say ‘Wow! This is incredible.’”
Dr. Ralston has also joined Clearwater mission trips to Mexico and South Africa,
where he has seen students gain a deep love for God’s work in
“As faculty, we get to know students and step into their lives. Going on international trips is one more way we learn to serve Him together.”
