Fall 2020 Updates and COVID-19 Guide

Dear Glauser School Community,

As we continue to monitor and work through the unique and unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and how the fall 2020 semester will look, I want to assure you that your safety is our highest priority. In addition to the University’s Flashes Safe Seven Principles, our unique and highly interactive programs require additional safety measures we are working to address with our partners across campus. We are also paying close attention to research studies currently underway investigating wind instruments and singing.

Along with safety, we also have an equal commitment to providing valuable and meaningful music-making and learning experiences in our ensembles, classrooms and studios. These solutions and policies will help to create a safe, positive and rewarding learning and music-making environment for all students.

This comprehensive resource will give you a better understanding of what the fall will look like and it will be updated as decisions are made. Please explore the music Q&A dropdowns below as well as links to University Covid-19 resources. I highly suggest bookmarking this page so you can regularly check back for additional updates.

Go Flashes!
Kent McWilliams
Professor and Director
