Monday 15 March 2020
Following the developing situation around COVID-19 and to prioritise the health and wellbeing of our community, all scheduled rehearsals, workshops, chamber platform sessions and concerts are cancelled until further notice.
This means no University Music, Music Society, BEAST, or Barber Concerts activity will take place until further notice. This includes the upcoming Birmingham University Singers tour to France and Germany.
We appreciate that this may be disappointing to many of you and thank you for your hard work this term.
Staff and students should check Canvas, the Intranet and their University email accounts regularly for course and exam related updates, and audiences should visit the www.birmingham.ac.uk/musicevents website and social media channels for further updates.
Students are encouraged to collect instruments from the music stores this week in order to practice over the Easter Break.
We hope you can appreciate the need to take this precautionary measure in-line with the University’s move to teach online only from 23 March.
For information on any of the above please contact the University Music and Concerts Team at: firstname.lastname@example.org
