Performance Music Ensembles, Fall 2020

    August 18, 2020

    To avoid the increased risks presented by the aerosolization produced by singing and wind instrument playing, Performance Music is offering members of the woodwind and brass sections of their bands and students who sing with their performance choirs various opportunities to learn/play string or percussion instruments until their regular ensembles are able to safely resume.

    Experienced percussionists, violinist, violists, cellists, and bassists will continue to be able to participate in String Orchestra and Percussion Ensemble this semester if they wish. Those ensembles will be split into numerous smaller groups to enable socially distanced rehearsals. 

    Student musicians who are interested in joining Performance Music's Bands, Performance Choirs, or String Ensembles, qualifying them to take advantage of this semester's alternate music-making opportunities for members of those ensembles, should email immediately if they have not yet been in touch with Performance Music about joining, to get the information they need to get started.

     In addition, the department intends to continue the Scranton Isolation Informances webcast series on occasion throughout the fall. The first 14 broadcasts from spring and summer are available for streaming on-demand from the Performance Music Facebook page at:
