COVID-19 SAFETY POLICIES
The Asheville Symphony is dedicated to our audience members’ safety and comfort. Though our indoor performances at Thomas Wolfe Auditorium do not begin until November, we are closely monitoring COVID-19 conditions, CDC recommendations, and local guidelines.
As of Wednesday, August 11, 2021, Harrah’s Cherokee Center (which contains our performance hall, Thomas Wolfe Auditorium) updated their health and safety requirements to include the below.
This policy will remain in effect until further notice and will apply to all upcoming Asheville Symphony performances within Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. As these protocols are set by our indoor venue, these requirements will not apply to our upcoming outdoor performance, Symphony in the Park, which takes place in Pack Square Park in September 2021.
Harrah’s Cherokee Center COVID-19 Safety Protocols:
- Be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least two weeks after final dose prior to event date)
- Take a COVID-19 diagnostic test (PCR or antigen) within 72 hours of the event date and receive a negative test result
- Physical vaccination card with your legal name clearly legible
- Photo, scan, or digital copy of your vaccination card on your mobile device
- Official negative test confirmation (physical document or email confirmation)
Failure to meet the requirements above will result in your inability to attend the event. If you are unwilling or unable to follow these protocols, please do not purchase a ticket as refunds will not be offered.
As the Asheville Symphony performs in Thomas Wolfe Auditorium within Harrah’s Cherokee Center, we and our audience are obligated to follow these safety protocols.
As we get closer to our first Masterworks performance, Uncaged, in November, there may be updates to these protocols. We will update this page accordingly in advance of that performance.
Thank you for your understanding and compliance with these venue policies. We look forward to seeing you safely at the Symphony!
