Due to COVID-19, the School of Music will not being hosting any events and concerts with attendance this fall, but this is not going to stop them from connecting with the UT and greater Knoxville community.
In September, the School of Music launched a Virtual Concert Series, which features performances from SOM faculty and students. Hopefully these performances will serve as a reminder that we’re still moving forward and the power of music is alive and well in the School of Music.
