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.

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.
