Health and Safety Protocols for the 2022-2023 Season

Coro Allegro, Boston’s LGBTQ+ and allied classical chorus, is committed to the health and safety of our audience members, singers, musicians, and staff. Our board of directors voted to join the ArtsBoston consortion of GREATER BOSTON ARTS AND CULTURAL ORGANIZATIONS PRIORITIZING SAFER EXPERIENCES, who have seated thousands of audience members safely by adhering to protocols. We appreciate the help of our community in making the joy of live performances viable again and as safe as possible. It is estimated that 98% of Boston-area arts and culture audiences had been fully vaccinated since the end of September, 2021. (WolfBrown Report).

We commit to being transparent about our policies and protocols and doing our best to keep you informed of any changes. The following policies cover Coro Allegro’s live programs in the 2022-2023 Season, our Sunday November 6, 2022 concert, Letters to Our Children: Voices across Generations for LGBTQ+ Youth at Old South Church, Boston, our Sunday, March 12, 2023 concert, Fanfares at the Church of the Covenant, Boston, and our Sunday, May 7, 2023 concert, The White Raven: Music for Troubled Times at Sanders Theatre, Cambridge. We look forward to seeing you there!

  1. We will follow all CDC and City of Boston guidelines at a minimum.
  2. All performers, staff and volunteers will be vaccinated. All staff and volunteers in contact with the public will be masked.
  3. For audiences, we will be following the COVID protocols implemented by many other performing arts spaces and theaters in the Greater Boston area.
