2020 Louisiana Bass Festival Cancellation

3/10/2020

The LSU School of Music administration, in coordination with Professor Yung-Chiao Wei, has decided to cancel the 2020 Louisiana Bass Festival. Our guest artist, Stefano Sciascia, is unable to travel from Italy to the United States due to the ongoing Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We very much regret these circumstances, but the health and safety of our performers and participants is paramount. Information about the refunding of competition entry fees will be sent directly to participants. 

Given the rapid development and fluid nature of the coronavirus outbreak, LSU has created a central hub for information on the outbreak as it pertains to the university. Please refer to https://lsu.edu/coronavirus and official LSU social media accounts (LSU Facebook and LSU Twitter) for the latest updates.
