Due to the pandemic, music tours for the 2020-2021 academic year have been canceled. All music ensemble tours canceled due to the pandemic, in both 2020 and 2021, will not be rescheduled. This includes international tours for Nordic Choir, Concert Band, and Jazz Orchestra.
Decisions will be made about returning to music tours when there are indications that the world is ready for this type of activity again. Whenever we are able to resume with music tours, we will pick up with the touring plan for that specific year, which can be found in the 5-year music tour model, adopted in Fall 2019 and linked here.
