UPDATE TO COVID-19 EVENT SAFETY POLICIES

In light of updated guidance from the CDC and California Department of Public Health, Sacramento Master Singers has made the following changes to the event safety:
  • Patrons attending our live concerts are encouraged but not required to wear a mask indoors.
  • Concert venues will be sold to full seating capacity without additional spacing between rows. 

We will continue to operate with the following policies at SMS concerts:

  • All Sacramento Masters Singers members and staff have been required to show proof of vaccination to participate in our 2021-22 Season.
  • Patrons attending our live concerts will be asked to show photo identification and proof of vaccination (with final dose at least 14 days prior to performance date) upon entry. Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination include: a vaccination card, printed record of vaccination, photo of such records on your phone, or digital vaccination record.
  • Ticket delivery will be limited to digital, printable or mailed tickets. In order to reduce lines and crowding, there will be no will call or walk-up sales on the day of the concert.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available in lobby and restroom areas.
  • Any patron experiencing symptoms of or recently exposed to COVID-19 is encouraged to stay home, and can receive a full refund.

In order to best protect our patrons, staff, and community at large, Sacramento Master Singers will be implementing additional safety measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at our concerts this season. The following policies are in accordance with large-event safety requirements and guidelines set down by the CA Department of Public Health.

  • All Sacramento Masters Singers members and staff have been required to show proof of vaccination to participate in our 2021-22 Season.
  • Patrons attending our live concerts will be asked to show photo identification and proof of vaccination (with final dose at least 14 days prior to performance date) upon entry. Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination include: a vaccination card, printed record of vaccination, photo of such records on your phone, or digital vaccination record.
  • All staff, singers, and patrons are required to wear masks covering the nose and mouth at all times while indoors. We strongly recommend the use of masks while congregating in heavily trafficked outdoor spaces before and after concerts.
  • Our 2021-22 concerts will be reduced-capacity events and employ an assigned seating system to better facilitate social distancing.
  • Ticket delivery will be limited to digital, printable or mailed tickets. In order to reduce lines and crowding, there will be no will call or walk-up sales on the day of the concert.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available in lobby and restroom areas.
  • Any patron experiencing symptoms of or recently exposed to COVID-19 is encouraged to stay home, and can receive a full refund.

While SMS can guarantee that all staff and singers are vaccinated, and we know you will do your part by observing our event safety policies, we recognize that none of these measures can fully eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

FAQs

What about preferred seating?

In past seasons Sacramento Master Singers concerts have been general admission seating with early entry for donors to select their preferred seating. Moving forward, SMS will be implementing assigned seating in order to socially distance groups of patrons. This change in seating protocols means we will no longer offer preferred seating.
