Health & Safety
The Evanston Symphony Orchestra strongly recommends the proper wearing of masks at all times for audiences including while in line to enter, when in close proximity to others, and throughout the performance. At this time, masks are optional at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall and at The Merion during Musical Highlights events. Guidelines may change in accordance with public health recommendations, so please check back here and pre-performance reminders for updates. Proof of vaccination is currently not required for audience members, Please note that all staff and artists are fully vaccinated.
The 100% audience vaccination requirement allows the ESO to operate at full audience capacity at both the ETHS Auditorium and at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall. As such, there will not be physical distancing between parties in either venue.
All patrons understand that there is a risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. Those purchasing tickets and attending ESO concerts voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
