COVID Policy

Dear Patron,

We are looking forward to being able to put on a full-band concert for you on October 23 at Chenery Auditorium. This program is going to be a heartfelt return to the concert stage with music in tribute to first responders, as well as in honor of our collective losses over the past year. While entertaining you we want to make sure that you, your fellow audience members, and the band are safe so we are putting in place the following safety practices that have been adopted by other performing organizations.

  1. Vaccination: As a band, we require all of our members to be vaccinated. We are asking the same for our patrons 12 and older for our concerts this season. Please bring proof of vaccination to Chenery. To make this easier consider downloading the Bindle app, setting up your account, and uploading your vaccination certification in advance of the event. Bindle is a secure wallet for your health records and an easy way to share your COVID health status privately with others. If you prefer, you also may present your vaccination card or a photo of your card along with proof of ID, or proof provided by a foreign government at the venue prior to the concert. Negative tests will not be accepted in lieu of vaccination status.
  1. Masking: Please wear masks over the mouth and nose while on premise at our concert. We ask this to protect yourself and your fellow concertgoers.

We know that this will make for an unusual concert experience. However, we believe it is best in order to ensure the safest environment for both our audience, as well as the performers in the room.

Thank you for your patience with us this year. We will continue to monitor the current status and may modify our rules as appropriate in future concerts.

Please feel free to share this message so that we can get the word out to as many people as possible.
