From the Department of Music Faculty
The Department of Music is proud of its students. Not only have they risen to the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, but in the wake of the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, they have committed themselves to social justice. We resoundingly support our students’ efforts to make the world a more inclusive and safer place, and we continue to elicit their input on how best to address the systemic racism that endangers people of color. We stand with our students in protesting violence against black and brown members of our community.
