Effective Saturday, March 14, 2020:
Due to COVID-19/Coronavirus, The Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School will temporarily suspend all activities. All private lessons, group classes, ensembles and recital/rehearsal/performance activities are suspended through SUNDAY, MARCH 22. At that time, we will consider opening only for private instruction and plan to resume all activities on SATURDAY, APRIL 18.
Online based private instruction through video chat programs such as Skype, Facetime, Zoom or other electronic delivery is an option during this suspension of activities. Students should contact their instructors to inquire about this option.
The Rhode Island Philharmonic fully supports the efforts of public health officials to control the spread of Coronavirus. We are committed to the health and safety of our staff, faculty, students, audiences and musicians, and the larger community. We will continue to follow all guidelines made by local, state or federal health officials, including rescheduling further activities, should that become necessary.
We are committed to the safety and wellness of our school community and will keep you informed on further updates. We will continue to navigate the best we can and reschedule all possible activities as circumstances allow. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time.
