For the safety of our students, staff and patrons, the Department of Music has decided to postpone in-person events in our spaces until 2021 (the Department of Theatre and Film has also postponed its events as well). This adheres to both the Ohio Department of Health guidelines, but also the guidelines set forth by the University for large gatherings. We will make updates as things develop.
