In light of the novel coronavirus pandemic WUMB has decided to cancel both the July and August weeks of SAMW for the summer of 2020. The University of Massachusetts Boston has also cancelled all summer in-person gatherings, and will move exclusively to online teaching for the summer.
This was a difficult decision, but a necessary one. Nothing can be more important to us than protecting the health of our SAMW community.
There is simply no online equivalent for the real time exuberance and hands-on learning that are the hallmarks of our Summer Acoustic Music Week, but please stay connected with our community through the continuously updated “Staying Together” feature on our website.
We ask your patience as we all make our way through this difficult time, and please do not hesitate to reach out with questions by emailing SAMW@umb.edu.
Stay safe and be well,
