For Your Health
Safety Guidelines and Protocols

Current Safety Measures

Updated for the 2022-2023 Concert Season

Masks are recommended at Sarasota Orchestra’s indoor concerts and events.

If you are exhibiting symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you please stay home. Sarasota Orchestra will provide patrons a full refund for any concerts that are missed due to COVID concerns, or should you determine our safety protocols are not appropriate for you.

Safety protocols are subject to change.

Performing arts organizations, like many businesses, have faced unprecedented challenges in this pandemic. The arts community is a major economic driver for the Suncoast, and our organizations are working collaboratively to ensure that our patrons can continue to safely experience the joy of live performances, and we can keep our artists and our staff employed. Our economic and creative vitality depends on providing the safest possible environment for everyone.

Joint Statement from Art Leaders

Sarasota Orchestra's Symphony Center and Sarasota Opera House have installed bi-polar ionization technology to eliminate viruses and germs.

Van Wezel Performing Hall has installed PURE+ AeraMax commercial grade air purifiers. These units have a multistage approach to air filtration using a Carbon Filter, True HEPA filter, Anti-Microbial treatment, and PlasmaTrue Bipolar Ionization.

Ticket sales are vital to sustain Sarasota Orchestra and preserve great music in our community. In the event Sarasota Orchestra needs to cancel a performance, we encourage ticket holders who are able to donate their tickets.

Refunds: Sarasota Orchestra provides full refunds of ticket purchases for the 2022-2023 season if patrons have concerns with public health trends or pandemic-related safety protocols. Requests must be received at least one full business day prior to the scheduled concert for the refund to be processed. Any request after this period may be considered for ticket exchanges to a later concert.

Annual Fund
