Covid Safety

In order to reduce the risk of transmission of Coronavirus we have introduced various mitigation measures for rehearsals and concerts in 2021.  This includes capping ticket numbers to enable social distancing between players and between audience groups; ventilation during rehearsals and performances, and a request to consider wearing face coverings to help protect vulnerable members of the audience and orchestra.  We have also adapted our 2021 concerts to 1-hour formats with no interval or refreshments.
