Tuesday, February 12: All concerts and classes CANCELLED

February 11, 2013

All Yale classes and events have been cancelled for Tuesday, February 12. This includes all Yale School of Music events, concerts, and classes. The performance of Bach’s Art of the Fugue, featuring the Orion String Quartet and Windscape, will not take place. For everyone’s safety, the School’s buildings will remain closed.

The Yale Emergency Management website is posting ongoing updates about the winter storm and news about the impact on campus activities.

The city is working very hard, with 120 crews on the streets, but the task is monumental. The crews have focused on clearing streets today, and will spend all night on clearing intersections, where flooding is likely because of today’s rain. As the Mayor of New Haven made clear, there is no prospect that the downtown can handle anything close to a normal business day’s traffic volume tomorrow, and parking both downtown and on campus would be inadequate to accommodate vehicles.

The Mayor is hopeful that New Haven can resume most normal activity on Wednesday, but decisions will be made day by day.

Updates from the City of New Haven are available here.
