- The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is the latest venue to implement mandatory proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to attend events.
Before you buy tickets before the 2021-2022 season at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, you’ll need to prick or swab.
The DSO announced Thursday that it will join the ranks of Many Metro Detroit locations that require all guests to provide proof of complete vaccination (means both Pfizer or Moderna shots or a single dose of Johnson & Johnson) or evidence of a negative COVID-19 test which should be either a 48-hour PCR test or a 6-hour antigen test.
Regardless of vaccination status, all guests must remain masked while inside at Max M., Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center (also known as The Max) and Orchestra Hall.
According to the press release, mandatory masks and proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will remain in place “so as not to require community transmission rates.”
These latest protocols represent the official reopening of the orchestra hall, which, rather than full-capacity indoor performances, has been focused on providing outdoor, out-of-community concerts in Sosnick Courtyard, as well as throughout the Detroit metro area.
Ann Parsons, President and CEO of DSO said in a press release.
“While we understand everyone’s desire to return to normal, we have concluded that these new policies are necessary to receive as many people safely as possible. I remain hopeful that the steps we are taking now will be temporary and that they will eventually help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Everyone to watch free live broadcasts online at dso.org If you are unable to join us in person.”
Once tickets are purchased, ticket holders will receive detailed instructions on how to submit proof of vaccination or a negative test prior to the event to ensure a smooth entry.
Tickets for two popular DSO shows went on sale this week: “The Music of John Williams” ($19) on September 22 and September 29 and Home Alone At Concert ($48) on Dec. 15.
