Health and Safety Protocol Update
August 27th, 2021
The Oklahoma City Philharmonic, in conjunction with the Civic Center Music Hall, announces changes to its health and safety protocols in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the severity of the Delta variant, as well as recent spike in hospitalizations across the region.
Beginning September 11, 2021 and until further notice:
· Masking will be required within all areas of the Civic Center.
· Either PROOF OF FULL VACCINATION OR PROOF OF A NEGATIVE PCR test (taken within 72 hours of entering the venue) for unvaccinated people ages 6 and above or those who prefer not to share their vaccination status, will be required.
· A photo ID along with the proof of vaccination (either physical vaccination card, a picture of your vaccination card, or a digital vaccination record) will be required.
Subscribers with a vaccination card will be required to show it at the first concert in their series. You will then be issued a pass that will allow you to enter the venue for OKCPHIL events without reshowing your vaccination/ID going forward.
Subscribers may also submit a copy of their vaccination card and photo ID ahead of time (with date of birth covered) to the Box Office via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or US Mail prior to the first concert, and a verification card will be mailed to you before the first concert. *Please allow sufficient time for the US mail to be delivered if choosing this method.
Agnieszka Rakhmatullaev, the Executive Director of the OKCPHIL says “Given the continued severity of this global health crisis, and as a performing arts organization whose mission is to gather large crowds to experience and share live orchestral music, we are implementing these additional safety protocols to protect the safety of our musicians, staff, volunteers, patrons, and their loved ones. Last season, the OKCPHIL was one of the 23% of U.S. orchestras that was able to present concerts in front of a live audience. This success was possible because of our extensive safety protocols implemented last year, and we believe that current circumstances require a similar action today. We appreciate the ongoing support and understanding of our patrons, as we continue to serve our community through music during these challenging times.”
Throughout the season, health and safety policies will be reviewed prior to each performance and adjusted as needed. Please refer to the OKCPHIL website and emails to keep abreast of any changes prior to each concert.
