Update on the Spring Concert Season

Patrons of Music,

As the worldwide coronavirus and COVID-19 situation has evolved, University of West Georgia leaders have been closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), and the University System of Georgia.

The health, safety, and well-being of all UWG stakeholders are of paramount importance. Therefore, in the best interest of all involved parties, the university has suspended or postponed all events taking place on campus for the remainder of the semester, including concerts and recitals previously scheduled within this period .

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your understanding.

Perform West

The band and choir experience doesn't have to end at High School. We offer a variety of vocal and instrumental ensembles which are open to all students of any major. Find out how you can Perform West!

Music is a shared experience - one that not only impacts our students but our entire community. These unique experiences are made possible with all of us. See how you can get involved by attending a concert or supporting our students and ensembles.
