COVID Protocols

For Many Voices, One Art – March 4, 2023

Since we’re singing, we require participants to wear good-quality (N95, KN95, or KF94) masks. We will have a limited number available, if people need them. We also strongly recommend that participants take an antigen test in the morning before they come to the event.

For Concerts

We require audience members to wear masks that cover the nose and mouth, without gaps, at all times.
Good quality masks provide the very best protection against disease transmission.

  • We strongly encourage the use of N95, KN95 or KF94 masks.
  • We will have a limited number of N95 masks available if needed.

All SFBC choir members, staff, and volunteers are fully vaccinated and will
remain masked for the entire event.

  • Some individuals (wind players, soloists, conductor, etc.) may remove their masks as needed while performing onstage.

We no longer will be checking vaccine status at the door.

  • After careful consideration we have determined that monitoring our audience’s vaccination status will not contribute significantly to our overall safety for this concert.
  • While vaccinations/boosters offer recipients lasting protection from severe disease, over time they provide less protection against shedding virus or transmitting the disease to others.
  • Vaccines are very important to protect ourselves, but don’t do much to protect the people sharing air space with us.

If you feel unwell in any way, care for yourself and protect others by staying home.

  • All ticket purchases include unlimited access to the video version of the concert.

We continue to monitor the pandemic situation very closely and will adjust our protocols according to prevailing conditions throughout the performance season.
