The  has mandated all universities transition to remote instruction, effective immediately.  Part of this movement to restrict gatherings of students on campus is the cancellation of all events including any non-student related rentals that are currently scheduled until at least May 8th. These decisions have been made with an abundance of caution for our students as well as our surrounding community that enjoy the facilities and performances at the CFPA. 
The decision on events happening on or after May 8th will be made as more information is gathered and made available to everyone.
Thank you for understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience.
