The entire orchestra has shown proof of COVID-19 vaccination. We are also asking our audience members to show proof of vaccination when purchasing tickets. As of now, we (and Concordia University) are requiring our audience and orchestra to wear masks at our concerts. We hope you appreciate our sincere effort to keep us all safe.  This year, tickets are not transferrable. There are a few ways to show us your C-19 vaccination card: upload it when you purchase your ticket online, email a copy to TheSymphonyOPRF@gmail.com, or mail it in with your check. When purchasing tickets at the door, you will need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination either with your card on a picture of it on your phone.

All ticket purchasers will also receive a link to view the concert at home the week after the actual concert.
