Music during COVID-19

Owing to the continuing coronavirus situation and closure of the University campus, all Music at Reading activities are cancelled until the end of the Summer term.

We are arranging a series of digital activities which will take place throughout the term. Music is proven to help mental health and wellbeing, and we believe that it is even more important than ever to stay connected during these unusual times. Activities will be hosted on Google Classroom to allow access to all of our members whether you are a student, staff, alumni or community member. These include weekly discussion topics, videos delving into the detail of some of our favourite music, links to activities shared by other music organisations, and musical challenges. In addition, we will be hosting a series of weekly live events, to include musical pub quizzes, seminars, and more. We will share a regular round up email with members containing information about the next live event, links, and additional information.

We would love to see you online. If you are doing any of the online singing or playing activities that are available at the moment, or playing and singing to support the NHS, then please tag us on social media @UniRdg_Music and we will be happy to share.
