COVID-19 UPDATE

AN UPDATE FROM THE OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF CHORAL ACTIVITIES

Don Trott and Dr. Elizabeth Hearn

Published – July 20, 2020

We are in a constant state of learning as the weeks go by. In fact, on July 25th we are anticipating a report sponsored by several choral organizations, most notably, the American Choral Directors Association, on a scientific study currently being completed at the University of Colorado. This report should have confirmation of information currently available, new data and guidance. We will review the July 25th report and then shortly thereafter post our Ole Miss Choir guide for fall choirs on this web site.

It is certain and obvious that the fall will bring unprecedented procedures and activity for the singers and directors. We will continue to review our plan looking at the safety aspects as priority one. We will also continue to strive to create opportunities that will be engaging, meaningful and uplifting.

First and foremost, we want to assure students enrolled in choir at Ole Miss, along with their parents and guardians, that we will do everything within our knowledge, understanding, and capability to mitigate the risks associated with infection from COVID-19.
