Important Updates About Upcoming Events
Hello, and thank you for your support of the Bower School of Music & the Arts at FGCU. The Bower School of Music & the Arts is committed to the health and safety of our patrons, performers, artists and students, and we are closely following the information coming from the University System of Florida and the Centers for Disease Control about the developments around the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Board of Governors directed classes to be converted to a remote instruction format at FGCU for the remainder of the semester, and students living on campus have been encouraged to go home during that time to continue their classes.
In an abundance of caution, and in an effort to help control the spread of this virus, the Bower School of Music & the Arts has cancelled all public events through the end of the 2019-2020 Season. This includes all concerts and recitals.
As always, we want to thank you for your continued support of the Bower School of Music & the Arts at FGCU, and look forward to providing you with the highest quality events in the future, and appreciate your patience and understanding as this situation unfolds.
Thank you for your time, and please do not hesitate to contact Joanna Hoch, Events Coordinator, at with any questions you might have concerning cancellations, refunds and possible rescheduling.
