    Concerts

    Each Performing Arts instructor will decide on a public performance for their classes and ensembles for the fall semester. These will most likely be in the form of recordings or live-streams posted to our various Performing Arts social media platforms. There will not be traditional evening concerts. This decision was reached via discussion between all Performing Arts staff, taking into account the current research and science for participant and audience safety. Spring performances will be evaluated after January. Check out the Fine Arts Calendar on the website for dates and updated information.
