The health and safety of our audiences, musicians and staff will always be our top priority. Effective March 14, 2022, taking into account the recommendations of federal, state and Portage County health administrators, guests and musicians will no longer be required to wear a mask at CWSO concerts. Masking will be considered "optional" and will be a matter of personal preference for all musicians and guests. Social distancing within the concert hall for audience members is allowed as well - please speak to an usher if you wish to change seats.


Please note that the CWSO reserves the right to change this policy at any time based on current health data.


Before attending the performance, we ask that you perform a self-assessment to determine whether you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of COVID-19. If you have any of these symptoms, we ask that you watch the performance virtually instead of attending in person:


  • Fever or Chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or Body Aches
  • New Loss of Taste or Smell
  • Sore Throat
  • Congestion or Runny Nose
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Diarrhea


Thank you for helping us to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community while still allowing us to share live music performances together.
