Music Events

Due to the evolving situation around COVID-19, all Corcoran Music performances have been canceled through the end of the semester.

We thank our graduating seniors for all of the work that they have put in over the past four years, and we look forward to returning to normal performances in the Fall with all of our continuing students.

The GW COVID-19 website is being updated regularly to include evolving guidance for the university community.


At the core of the Music program's educational training are a wide variety of curricular performances. Many of the performances listed on this page are connected with small ensembles or individual performance study, and are free and open to the public.
