We are committed to the safety of our musicians and families

In the Fall of 2021, we will adopt the VCOP safety plan that has kept musicians safe for an entire year of rehearsal with no transmission of any illness at rehearsal. In summary:

  • Masks are required when out of your seat. Once in your seat, masks are optional.
  • Physical distancing will be employed based on CDC guidelines. 
  • String players may request to rehearse without a stand partner.
  • Musicians will be reminded regularly to communicate any symptoms of illness and to stay home from rehearsal if necessary.


An official safety policy will be posted here in August before rehearsals begin.
