Concert Night – what to expect!

Please read carefully and remember the basics to attend: (i) guests correctly masked throughout your time in the Fine Arts Building, (ii) showing photo ID, (iii) showing either proof of full vaccination or a negative PCR test within 72 hours – and (iv) wearing visible stickers (explained below.)

Thank you for your compliance and patience; it is these safety measures that enabled us to launch the new season. Know that our priority is your safety and well-being, and we count on your enjoyment outweighing any inconvenience.
