ICYMI: Pacific Symphony and Other Major OC Arts Venues Announce New Vaccination & Masking Policies

In March 2020, after the worldwide outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, the entire performing arts industry experienced an unprecedented shutdown. After a year and a half of adjusting to conditions, Pacific Symphony and several major Orange County arts venues are getting ready to welcome patrons back to concert halls once more.  

While we’re excited to see you in-person again, the success in reopening live performing arts venues will rely on all of us to work together. In case you missed the initial announcement last week, here are some highlights:  

  • These updates are in effect for all indoor performances.  
  • Masks must be worn at all times.  
  • Fully vaccinated 14 days after the first or second dose of receiving a covid-19 vaccine. 
  • Anyone without proof of being fully vaccinated must provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to entering the theatre. 

As we continue to monitor industry and government guidelines, we will keep you updated as much as we can. Places where you’ll find reminders include (but are not limited to) our main website and social media and email communication channels.  

We know it has been a very challenging time but we want to take this moment to thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we move forward with upcoming 2021-22 concert season.

  1. How do I go about getting a refund? I bought tickets for Beethoven, but your rules were not posted yet at the time of my purchase. I have asthma so I cannot wear a mask for the entire time of the performance. I have been vaccinated. My husband also is vaccinated, but his health issues mean he cannot wear a mask the whole time, either. Also, we are both elderly. We have been devoted guests for years at the Center, and donors to Pacific Symphony for years. Could you not just sell fewer tickets, and space the patrons more openly? There is no way that many people could wear a mask for the whole 3 hours. Please reconsider. Thank you.
