Our first live concert in almost two years will take place on Sunday, September 12. And while that is a source of great joy, we need to ask for your cooperation as we create a safe environment. We want to share with you the steps that will be taken at the PUBLIQuartet concert for the protection of everyone.
First, seating will be limited in the auditorium to ensure proper social distancing. Our advance sales have already reached the maximum capacity for the auditorium, and so no tickets or subscriptions will be sold on site. Only those who have pre-ordered a ticket will be admitted. We will not be able to accommodate anyone who has not already purchased a ticket. And vaccination is required for all attendees, including students. Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination.
In the auditorium, seating has been carefully arranged to provide social distancing. No more than 2 people can sit together. Two empty seats must remain vacant between each set of occupied seats. Alternate rows must remain un-occupied. The rows will be clearly marked: seating is allowed only in rows marked blue. We will reserve the front rows of both sections of the auditorium for people with special needs. Members of the Friends Of Music Concerts board will be available to provide assistance and guidance.
Masks will be required for all attendees and staff.
PUBLIQuartet has planned a lively, exciting program that will run approximately 80 minutes, without intermission. You can find the Program Notes here.
In limiting ticket sales, we are reducing the income for the season without reducing our expenses. Once again, we thank the many people who have supported Friends Of Music Concerts with donations. And in the Program Notes for the Sept. 12 concert, we are acknowledging donations made in 2020. Your generosity is helping us to survive. Remember that an ArtsWestchester matching grant is now available so any new donations will be doubled.
We look forward to welcoming ticket holders on Sunday and we hope that soon we will be able to accommodate a full house once again. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out through the contact form.
