A safe return to music making

As we plan a return of academic and artistic excellence to the halls of Imig Music Building this semester, we understand that you have questions. As parents, the safety and academic experience of your child is of the utmost importance. As students, knowing what your academic experience will look like is a pressing question at this extraordinary moment. 

We've been working in close alignment with the University of Colorado Boulder’s guidelines, campus aerosolization, HVAC and risk mitigation experts, and our own faculty and staff. For the health and safety of our entire community, everyone is required to wear a mask both indoors and outdoors while on campus. Specifically, all music students, faculty and staff must wear a mask while participating in classes, lessons, coachings, rehearsals of all size ensembles, performances, meetings in our music buildings and anytime they are playing their instruments or singing. [Exception: Flutists are not required to wear a mask while playing but must still maintain the required 8' minimum distance.]
