Due to the increasing Covid case numbers and the dangers involved with spreading the virus through playing wind instruments indoors, we have been advised by the COVID Task Force to continue offering our concert band classes as an online band literature course for the spring semester.
Considering the situation, you will be given some options for the spring semester concert band participation.
1. If you are needing a large ensemble credit, you may register for the concert band to which you have been assigned according to the audition. The class will meet on MWF at 12:30 pm via Zoom. We will cover approximately 20 grade 3-4 pieces of music that you may need to conduct when you become a band director.
2. If you do not need the Large Ensemble credit and need to take a different class during this time, you may do so without penalty to your band scholarship.
3. If you are a non-music major and on a band scholarship, you will be excused from taking a concert band this semester due to the circumstances. Your band scholarship standing will not be affected.
***Those of you in Chamber Winds may be requested to prepare some chamber music for some university events. If so, you will be given plenty of warning and will be contingent on your comfort level playing with an instrumental group during the pandemic.
