Casa, home to The University of Lethbridge Conservatory of Music, has been closed by the City of Lethbridge. Group classes, choirs, and orchestra sessions have been concluded and all studio recitals postponed. Please contact music.conservatory@uleth.ca for additional information.

The Faculty of Fine Arts is a hands-on, experiential program and we share everyone’s disappointment in the cancellation of our final performances, exhibitions and productions. Our faculty are working diligently to come up with creative solutions in an unprecedented situation. We are also doing our best to meet the needs of our students through alternate course delivery. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we all maneuver through this rapidly evolving situation.
