The last time we played live music for you — in January of 2020 — we had no idea it would be almost two years until we could be together again. So much has changed since then, it’s hard to even find the words to begin. We mourn the uncountable losses and are grateful for what we have found anew. And we are so very ready to make music for you again.

The safety and health of our audience and musicians is our highest priority. While the musicians have been rehearsing, we’ve also spent months preparing our guidelines and protocols. All performing CCO musicians are fully vaccinated or tested negative each week, as are staff and the volunteers you’ll see at our concerts.

You and your guests must also be fully vaccinated to attend a concert, or show proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours prior to the event. An original vaccination card, a printed copy of a valid vaccination card, or negative test will be accepted. Documentation may also be presented in digital form, such as a screen shot or photo on a phone. The entire front of the vaccination card or test result must be visible. You will be asked to show these credentials for each individual concert. No refunds will be made for failure to comply with these protocols. We appreciate your patience and support.

With guidance from the CDC, for now everyone in attendance is required to wear a mask at all times, with the exception of the conductor when speaking at his microphone. We have discontinued our post-concert receptions until further notice. Group seating will be available for those attending together, with social distance spacing between groups. Hand sanitizer will be available and we will make other adjustments as recommended.

As the popular saying goes, it’s been a minute. But we have never stopped thinking about the days we’d be back together — with each other and with you — sharing our love of music and community.
