Fall Quarter 2020 Concerts
UC Davis Music

The UC Davis Department of Music brings life to both classic and newly-created works. Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not offer in-person concerts in the Fall of 2020. We hope we can return to presenting in-person concerts sometime between January and June of 2021. In fact, we have many spectacular and diverse programs planned by the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, Empyrean Ensemble, Chorus, Concert Band, and others.

Beginning in October, we will livestream weekly noon concerts thanks to generous gifts made to the Joy S. Shinkoskey Series of Noon Concerts Endowment. Gifts to the endowment are made by local Davis resident Brett Hewitt and others, and support professional musicians from our region. If you are able, consider contributing to the fund.

We are also exploring the possibility of streaming a few creative performances by our student ensembles. We will release more information as our options become more clear. Any streamed concerts will be shown on the Music at UC Davis YouTube channel.
