COVID-19 Update

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and TCU’s public health initiative to help protect the health and well-being of our community, the TCU School of Music will be unable to welcome audiences in-person at any events this fall and until further notice. 

However, many experiences will be available to enjoy online in a virtual or digital format. We invite you to visit the TCU School of Music YouTube channel to view the event livestreams. We hope you’ll join us, albeit virtually, and send along your support and applause as we continue creating and sharing music from the TCU Campus to our friends and family from around the world.

Visit and follow @TCUMusic on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest events information.
