Dear Friends,

To continue our public health efforts against COVID-19, the School of Music will be canceling all public performances from Monday, March 23 to the end of the Spring semester. This includes all School of Music student, faculty, and guest artist recitals and concerts, both on and off campus. During this time, our building will also be closed to the public. Thank you for your patience and understanding – our current priority is transitioning to online classes and lessons.

The arts community worldwide is suffering financially because of necessary social distancing, and we are no different. Cancellations to concerts, recitals, and even student and faculty travel will have an impact on our School.

Members of our community have inquired as to how they can help our students during this time of crisis. While we understand not everyone can provide financial support, for those who are interested in supporting our music community we offer the following suggestions:

  • Consider not requesting a refund for a cancelled event if that makes sense for you and your budget.
  • Consider donating to a relief fund for working artists such as the ArtsGreensboro Artist Relief Fund. These funds are designed to give aid to those whose performance income has been interrupted by the pandemic.

Thank you so much for your support of our students, faculty, and staff.

Please stay safe and healthy!
