Celebrating American composer Adolphus Hailstork’s 80th birthday, we open with his virtuosic and colorful American Port of Call. Brilliantly orchestrated, Hailstork’s piece depicts the busyness and excitement of an American port city. Astounding violinist, Karen Gomyo, joins the orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto, one of the most popular pieces in the repertoire due to its captivating melodies and demanding virtuosity. Sibelius’ uplifting 5th Symphony is a hymn to the human spirit – the perfect piece to celebrate the return of live music.
Please read this important announcement from the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center concerning the new COVID 19 vaccination policy. These requirements will be in place for our opening night concert, Embark, on Saturday, September 18.
We are excited about the return to live theatre and are eager to welcome you back through our doors! Our priority is the health and safety of our audiences, artists, volunteers, event personnel and staff. As we re-open our theater doors and offices, we remain committed to doing our part to curtail the spread of infection and offering the safest experience for all. With this commitment as our guide, we want to share with you our current in-house policies.
Effective September 15, and until further notice The Z requires all attendees at indoor performances and gatherings over the age of 12 be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus or submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test within 72 hours or antigen test within 24 hours of the show that you are attending). The same is expected of all Zeiterion staff, event personnel, and volunteers.
In addition, because of the virulent and highly contagious nature of the Delta variant, we require properly fitting masks or facial coverings are worn by all, including children and regardless of vaccination status, when not actively eating or drinking.
Proof of vaccination or a negative test as described above will be required before entering any Zeiterion indoor venue along with a photo ID. We will communicate how these requirements will be managed and what to expect in an email before your next visit.
To further support our community’s well-being and in recognition of the many uncertainties due to the pandemic, all tickets are now exchangeable for another Zeiterion performance within the season. Our intention is that greater flexibility will help further discourage attendance at a presentation by anyone with symptoms or potential exposure. We also want to support those who are providing care to someone who is ill, by allowing easier exchanges. Our box office staff is ready to make the accommodation you need.
We will continue to evaluate these policies and post the most up-to-date information on our website.
The arts lift our spirits and bring us together – please join us in helping make sure live, in-person performances can resume uninterrupted.
See you soon and be well.
