Community School of Rock

Closure of Open School of Music, Monday 16 March 2020

Dear Open School Students and Supporters,

As you will know from numerous news reports the COVID-19 virus has the potential to seriously impact the health of many across the Australian community. As such the ANU is taking immediate precautions to limit risk factors including the cancellation of all public gatherings.

The School of Music engages with many groups across our community to support the delivery of fine music and important cultural events. All such events will be cancelled from Monday 16 March.

Some of these may be rescheduled later in the year after the risk of viral spread has passed but this is not guaranteed and we are unable to confirm when these activities may resume. We are unable to provide online streaming, recording or modifications to these activities as our staff will be fully engaged in education and research tasks.

Please keep an eye on our webpage and Facebook page for updates. We share your disappointment and sadness regarding this decision but the health of all concerned is our first priority.

If you have paid fees for participation in Open School of Music programs in Semester 1 2020, then the Open School of Music will be in touch as soon as possible with information on how to claim a refund.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact
