COVID Safety Requirements

Old Cabell Hall at the University of Virginia

  • Universal masking by all audience members, musicians and guest artists, volunteers, and Charlottesville Symphony staff is required while indoors until UVA restrictions are eased or lifted.
  • Seat assignments are not distanced.
  • The November 6-7 concerts have been shortened to approximately one hour with no intermission to reduce restroom lines and crowd mingling.
  • If you are not feeling well, and especially if you are experiencing any of the symptoms commonly associated with the COVID-19, please stay home.  We will gladly offer you a ticket refund.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center

  • Universal masking by all audience members, musicians and guest artists, volunteers, and Charlottesville Symphony staff is required while indoors until Charlottesville City Schools restrictions are eased or lifted.
  • Additionally, the Charlottesville City Schools require everyone, except children 12 years and under, entering the MLKPAC to provide proof of full vaccination or proof of a negative result of a NAAT or PCR COVID test taken within 72 hours of arrival, matched by a valid photo ID. Proof checkers will be on site.  Any of the following will be accepted as proof of vaccination status:
    • a physical copy of the vaccine card
    • a digital photo on a phone of the vaccine card
    • a printout or digital image of the vaccine record from a medical provider
    • a printout or digital image of the vaccination from your state’s vaccine registry

For those unable to be vaccinated due to sincerely held religious beliefs or medical conditions, proof of a negative NAAT or PCR COVID test taken within 72 hours of arrival at the MLKPAC, matched by a valid photo ID is required.  Please bring the negative test result, or a photo of it with the date and name clearly visible.  At-home rapid results tests will not be accepted because the test taker cannot be verified.
