Due to COVID-19, all CES schools including BYU-Idaho have canceled large gatherings, as well as canceling classes and resuming them online. As a result of these circumstances, ALL public performances from the Department of Music have been canceled for the remainder of the Winter Semester. We will keep updated information here and on our Instagram and Facebook pages as we learn more. We are sad to see these events canceled, but we care first and foremost about the health and safety of our students, faculty, and community. We're sorry for any inconvenience and look forward to events resuming in future semesters.
Each year, the BYU-Idaho Department of Music proudly hosts over 250 performances featuring 27 student ensembles, faculty recitals, world-class guest artists, and collaborative events. Among these are the popular BYU-Idaho Christmas Concert, Patriots and Pioneers, and the Sacred Music Series. These events have become an important part of BYU-Idaho's culture and traditions. Performances are open for BYU-Idaho students, faculty, family, and the community to enjoy! Check out the calendar our Facebook Page to stay updated on all of our events! Don't miss your opportunity to see these performances!
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, BYU-Idaho has announced the cancellation of all on-campus face-to-face classes. The Spring 2020 semester will be online and remote learning only. All performances and ensemble classes have been cancelled. We appreciate your patience and restraint as we worked to gather information and determine how we can and should proceed in the Department of Music. We recognize the distress and worry this has caused each of you as you have been waiting for answers. Students – please check your email for a very important letter from Bro. Mecham regarding Spring Semester. Students who had intended Spring 2020 to be their last semester on campus may contact Sister Roberts in the Department of Music office (firstname.lastname@example.org, 208-496-4951) to arrange an appointment with Bro. Mecham to discuss their individual situations. Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation as we work through this challenge together.
