UPDATE: January 10, 2022

As we navigate how to continue performing for you during these unprecedented times, your safety is our top priority. That is why, due to the spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant, we will require that masks are worn over the nose and mouth during our upcoming Classical 3 concert on Saturday, January 22. All patrons, staff members, musicians, and crew will be required to wear a mask throughout the concert hall and for the entire duration of the concert, even once you are at your seats.

We appreciate your cooperation with these guidelines. While this is our current policy, please check back for further updates to our health and safety guidelines ahead of future concerts.


UPDATE: November 21, 2021

The Huntsville Symphony Orchestra is changing its masking policy to MASKS PREFERRED from MASKS REQUIRED beginning with our next concert, Pops 1 on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2022, with the exception of our Casual Classics 2 concert on January 9, 2022. We hope all of our patrons will continue to protect themselves and others who are more vulnerable from COVID with smart health habits. We encourage those who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing their masks. We also hope that lower COVID transmission rates will continue so that it does not become necessary for the HSO to reverse this policy change.

Masks will be required for our Casual Classics 2: Musical Chair with Mozart, on January 9, due to the audience sitting on stage with the orchestra members. Masks will not be required for patrons who wish to sit in the audience of the Concert Hall.


UPDATE: November 1, 2021

The HSO remains committed to ensuring your safety during HSO events. After carefully monitoring the development of the pandemic over the last few weeks, we are adding our Classical 2 concert on November 12, to the list of concerts requiring that masks be worn at all times over the nose and mouth.

We are grateful for your cooperation and look forward to playing for you soon.
