A Note to Our Families

As we make our way back to campus for fall semester, I wanted to say hello and thank you to all our families joining us this year and invite you to take advantage of all that Colburn has to offer. We have a great performance calendar, and while many are free events with livestreams, every enrolled Community School student can receive two complimentary tickets for ticketed events on the Colburn campus. Take a look at the Season Overview.

Make sure that you remember to tap into the most important resource we have: our community. Whether it’s building life-long friendships, experiencing incredible student performances, or learning more about the performing arts universe from our committed faculty and staff, we invite you to get to know more about the other cast of characters walking the plaza. Join us on our Facebook page for “Virtual Office Hours” on September 18 to learn more about all things Colburn. And beginning in October, we’ll invite you to return to the plaza for Office Hours, our monthly pop-up for the whole Colburn family.

I look forward to getting to know you and your family over the coming year. I hope to see you all at an event or two, but don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about resources available to our families.
