Your Health & Safety

Last updated: August 17, 2020

This October, the orchestra will tune, Delta David Gier will ascend the podium, and the music will return. It is a season appropriate for the times – created with both musicians and audiences in mind to offer flexibility and adaptability in an uncertain environment. Please know that all of the decisions regarding performing these concerts were made with your health and safety foremost in our minds. We have been closely following the research of orchestras all over the world concerning social distancing of both audiences and performers. It also includes input from patrons like you, and features guidelines provided by local medical experts. Flexibility is a key component of our strategy for navigating these unpredictable times, and further adjustments may be needed as we proceed.
