We know one of the best ways to learn how your student is doing is to visit them. Yet, in the midst of a global pandemic, traveling at this time is not advisable. Through our Parents and Family Virtual Visit, we’ve put together a series of virtual programs that you can experience along with your student.

The Virtual Family Visit will feature conservatory student recitals; live-streamed performances by Oberlin’s legendary steel drum band, OSteel and our own Taiko Drumming Ensemble, workshops and more.

In addition, we will be offering a virtual social hour, affording parents the opportunity to meet one another and chat in virtual break out rooms.
