Performing Arts Aerosol Study Begins to Find Hope for
Future Music Activities Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

In May, the NFHS, CBDNA and a coalition of over 125 performing arts organizations commissioned a study on aerosol rates produced by activities in music, speech, debate and theatre. Over the last month, researchers at the University of Colorado-Boulder and the University of Maryland have been hard at work gathering preliminary results. NCMEA is a financial contributor to this study.
