THE ANN ARBOR SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA ANNOUNCES FALL 2021 SAFETY PLANS
Ann Arbor, MI (August 12, 2021) — The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra (A2SO) has unveiled its 2021 Fall Season safety protocols, designed to provide a safe, secure experience as the orchestra cautiously returns to a full, in-person concert season.
Under new guidelines crafted in partnership with the A2SO’s COVID-19 Taskforce, all audience members will be required to wear a face mask that covers the nose and mouth at all times while inside the concert hall. Furthermore, the submission or presentation of one of the following will be required in order to gain admittance:
- A fully-completed, valid COVID-19 vaccination card, or
- Proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the concert start
In addition to these safety measures, empty seats will be left between household groups, food and beverage services have been suspended until further notice and all A2SO musicians and staff present at the venue are required to be fully vaccinated.
The A2SO continues to closely monitor city, state and federal developments to ensure that our approach is continuously in alignment with the latest health guidance. We’re grateful to our audiences for their patience and perseverance as we strive to deliver a safe return to the concert hall across 2021-2022.
Launching their 93rd season, the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra (A2SO) is a premier regional orchestra that creates live orchestral music for 70,000 listeners each year. They engage with the community not only through innovative concert programming in the Michigan Theater and Hill Auditorium, but also via educational programs, radio, recordings, numerous community concerts, and online streaming activity.
