Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Info regarding how this event is being affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.:

The safety of our audience, staff, volunteers, and musicians is of utmost importance to us. We have joined with organizations across the Cultural District to implement the health and safety protocols below in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each guest (not just the ticket-purchaser) will be required to be fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to the concert and must show proof of vaccination (either your vaccine card or a photocopy or a photograph of your card) along with photo identification at their time of entry into the theater with a valid ticket. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from getting the vaccine, you must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of the performance start time. COVID-19 tests must be administered by an official testing center. Self-administered tests will not be accepted. Subscribers have the option of emailing us proof of vaccination by September 25th, and in return, we will provide a “Vaccinated Subscriber” card that serves as both your ticket and as proof of vaccination to be used for entry at all shows. For now, we are requiring all guests to wear a mask while inside the Strayhorn theater for our performances. We will continue to monitor the ongoing recommendations of the CDC and Allegheny County, and we will provide updates and/or changes as we go through the season.
