Getting the School of Music ready for our fall semester was undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges we have ever faced. We needed not only to be prepared for teaching some of our classes in person, but also to have spaces ready for our students to practice and many small ensembles to perform. We also needed to arrange for our students who would be taking classes at home to have specialized equipment, such as digital pianos, microphones, and traditional musical instruments. Over the summer, Chad Wahls and Nathan Mandel were on the front lines of all of this work. The list of large projects they had to complete was as long as my arm and included rekeying all of our practice rooms; devising access, scheduling, and safety policies; determining safe occupancy levels and staging rooms for student and faculty use; and so much more. I cannot tell you how proud I am of the job they did and continue to do to keep our doors open and make our spaces available and safe for our students!
