The Asheville Symphony is dedicated to our audience members’ safety and comfort. 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.

Harrah’s Cherokee Center COVID-19 Safety Protocols:

All event attendees, staff, vendors, etc. (all persons within facility) must meet at least one of the following requirements and provide documentation prior to entry for all events:
  • 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
Acceptable forms of documentation include:
  • 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)

Masks are required within the venue by attendees, vendors, and staff unless actively eating or drinking.

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!
