Overture Center Safety Policies Update, August 19, 2021

Overture Center is requiring face masks and proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test.

Overture Center announced COVID-19 safety policies that will be in effect for our upcoming events — the free Farmers’ Market Organ Concert on Saturday, August 28, and September “Joyful Reunion — Beethoven’s Ninth” on September 24, 25 & 26. The policies will apply to patrons, artists, employees, volunteers and the community. Everyone who enters the Overture Center building will be required to adhere to the following requirements:

  • must wear a face mask that covers nose and mouth.
  • must be fully vaccinated, meaning their last dose must have been administered at least 14 days before the event.
  • must show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination with a physical vaccination card, a photograph of the card or a digital vaccination record, or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours prior to the performance, with a photo identification, such as a driver’s license, passport or student identification.

Ticket holders who do not want to wear a face mask and those who are unable to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test may obtain a ticket refund by contacting the Ticket Office at tickets@overture.org or 608.258.4141. Refunds are being accepted for shows through September 30, 2021. Refund policies will be evaluated monthly.

Overture Center’s COVID-19 reopening policies for public events are in effect on Saturday, Aug. 28, for the Farmers’ Market Organ Concert, and when the building officially reopens Monday, Aug. 30, and will remain in effect until further notice.
