FAQ for Oakville Symphony patrons
Conductor Showcase Season (2021-22)
As we return to live concerts at the Oakville Centre in November 2021, and with the subscription series launching in February 2022, we know that patrons have concerns about Covid safety protocols. While the future of the pandemic remains uncertain, we will endeavour to provide answers based on the current information.
On August 12, 2021, the Oakville Centre released its Covid-19 Patron Safety Plan. We invite you to read this document.
The following list of Frequently Asked Questions has been developed after consultation with the Oakville Centre and will be updated as the situation develops. Please note that the Oakville Centre is currently closed but plans to open in September.
“The Oakville Centre is part of the Town of Oakville and has been involved with the development of an all-encompassing Covid response plan called The Recovery Playbook. This is a comprehensive guide to the health and safety protocols required to keep staff and the public safe while delivering or accessing Town services. These protocols are based on a wide variety of sources including Town policies, government directives, industry best practices and public health guidelines. The playbook is reviewed and updated regularly based on prevailing Covid knowledge and operational expectations, and both industry and Covid best practices.” (Statement from the Oakville Centre – June 2021)
Q. Will proof of vaccination be required for patrons and staff/volunteers at the Oakville Centre?
Q. Will all the seats be sold and occupied for the November 6 & 7, 2021 concerts?
A. 250 seats will be available (about 50% normal capacity). The Centre will offer concurrent live streaming to a virtual audience.
Q. Will face masks be required?
A. Yes. All persons over the age of 5 must wear a face mask or covering. (Halton Region By-law 47-20)
Q. What is the cancellation policy for concert tickets?
A. In the 2019-20 season the Oakville Centre was flexible about ticket cancellations, offering a refund (minus a small processing fee) to patrons, or the option of donating the value of the unused ticket to the Oakville Symphony. We anticipate a similar policy should a concert be canceled due to restricted health and safety guidelines.
