Musicians will all be spaced 12 feet apart, no more than 18 people will be in a room at a time, masks with mouth slits are required, and 30-minute rehearsals will be followed by 15-minute breaks. COVID-19 Performing Arts Aerosol Study. Med. “A lot of our students, not surprisingly, really want to get back to music-making. Friday, Jan. 15: Classes follow a Wednesday class meeting schedule today (excludes law). “The hope is that students, teachers, school systems and parents can use this information to calculate their own risk,” Stockman said. After that rehearsal, 53 members of the SVC among 61 in attendance were confirmed or strongly suspected to have contracted COVID-19 and two died. Major techniques used include microfabrication, chromatography, electrochemistry, electrophoresis, microfluidics, microscopy, and 3D printing. To be generated, the researchers say, aerosols need a “wet, vibrating surface” like your throat or tongue. They want to be back in the rehearsal room. The musician plays each note slowly and purposefully, pausing between notes. During his tenure at Texas A&M University, Dr. Rhea has conducted the Wind Symphony for conventions of the Texas Music Educators Association (five times), the College Band Directors National Association (two times), the Midwest International Band & Orchestra Clinic, the Western International Band Clinic, and the American Bandmasters Association (2009 convention host), as well as in settings such as New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Meyerson Symphony Center of Dallas and the Wortham Center of Houston, and on tours which have taken the band throughout the state of Texas. The non-woven meltblown polypropylene filter traps particles down to .03 micros.

He earned the Master of Music in Wind Conducting from Texas Tech University where he studied with the late James Sudduth. Aerosol Research. Although there is no record of a COVID-19 outbreak being linked to an instrumental ensemble, scientists like Miller suspected such gatherings could also potentially spread the virus. She is one of several researchers exploring the ways in which wind-instrument musicians’ performances generate aerosol particles that may transmit COVID-19. Identify solutions to reduce aerosol release and spread while artists perform their craft. Jose Jimenez, a University of Colorado chemist who signed the letter, said the idea of aerosol transmission should not frighten people. The scientific and performing arts team at CSU has completed preliminary work, which included adapting the SET facility for testing musicians, singers, and actors, as well as finalizing study protocols through a range of preliminary tests involving wind playing, speech, and singing. Dr. Henry has published over 180 peer-reviewed publications, generated eight patents, and is an associate editor for Analytica Chimica Acta. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advocates maintaining six feet from others to prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19); however, this is based on expected airborne particles emitted during regular breathing. So a group of over 120 performing arts groups commissioned Miller and her team to find out. (Credit: Glenn Asakawa/University of Colorado) Bottom: Stockman uses a DSLR camera to tape her clarinet performance to test for aerosol movement and dispersion from her instrument using a method called the Schlieren technique, in Miller's mechanical engineering laboratory on the CU Boulder … A new study done by University of Colorado scientists confirms that singing without a mask inside can spread COVID-19 particles easily. Investigators at LASP study the production of aerosol particles and their lifetime in the atmosphere. ), where his minor was in Arts Administration and he was winner of the prestigious Corbett-Treigle Opera Competition.Prior to his appointment as executive director in 2008, he served NATS as district and regional governor and was elected national secretary/treasurer from 2006-2008. and the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati (D.M.A. CU Boulder Today is created by Strategic Relations and Communications. That's part of their identity.". While these results are preliminary, Miller recommends musicians wear a mask even while playing, using one with a small slit for one’s mouth and the instrument’s mouthpiece, while their nose remains covered. . In addition, Dr. Henry has been involved in five spin-out companies from Colorado State University with products ranging from industrial water quality sensors to low-cost environmental diagnostics. Emily Morgan is a teacher, dancer, and choreographer. NAfME is supporting a new study on the effects of COVID-19 on the return to the rehearsal hall. She also recommended using a well-fitted bell cover with multiple layers of tightly woven material, social distancing while playing, playing in a well-ventilated place and limiting the amount of time spent together indoors. “They wanted to know whether wind instruments are as dangerous as singing and what we could do to make them safer,” Miller said. Where do the aerosols come out of a given instrument? Aerosols and Clouds Above the Tropopause (2018) This work has two facets – investigations of stratospheric aerosols and studies of polar stratospheric and mesospheric clouds. In these experiments, the musicians breathe the fog in and out, and because the fog evaporates inside the musician, it comes out of the instrument darker than the air around it. A companion study is being conducted at the University of Maryland. Protocols for dance are forthcoming. Top: Shelly Miller and graduate student Tehya Stockman inspect a bell cover on Stockman's clarinet. The questions they’re trying to answer: Do wind instruments create aerosols—the tiny droplets of liquid that can carry the novel coronavirus? During his tenure at Western Connecticut State University (WCSU), Dr. Goble provided leadership for curricular and programmatic changes that affected positively the School of Visual and Performing Arts (SVPA) and the university, most notably the planning and construction of an award-winning $97 million instructional and performance facility, which opened in 2014.
