    The University of Utah has proactively monitored and responded to daily developments as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread in Utah and across the United States. As was announced by President Watkins on March 12, 2020, classes at the University of Utah are cancelled Monday and Tuesday, March 16 and 17 (after Spring Break). The University of Utah will shift to all-online instruction beginning March 18 for the rest of spring semester. All School of Music concerts, and all other public events, are cancelled through April 29th, 2020, except for student recitals that are required to be completed this semester for graduation. These student recitals will not be open to the public, except through online streaming. The School of Music Office, the McKay Music Library, and School of Music practice rooms will remain open. However, we encourage students to take advantage of technologies that allow them to receive instruction while not being physically present on campus. Students who are away from campus are encouraged not to travel back. Our highest priority remains the health and safety of our students.
