Amidst the Pandemic: Songs of Hope

This summer, University of Illinois System President Tim Killeen invited music departments and groups across the system to produce inspirational musical videos to share with our university communities and beyond, to serve as inspiration and hope as students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends weather the COVID-19 pandemic.

“These pieces are intended to connect us to each other, and to our universities in a time when circumstances continue to often keep us apart. I hope you find them as uplifting and inspiring as I do.” - Tim
