In keeping with our pledge to closely monitor changes in health and safety guidance and regulations from local, state, and national health departments, we have updated our health and safety protocols as follows.


Effective February 1, 2023 we are no longer requiring proof of vaccination at our Bay Area venues.**

**For performances at ODC Theater ONLY, proof of vaccination remains required for entry (per venue policy).


Masks are strongly recommended but no longer required at Philharmonia performances.


Please self-assess your health before leaving home by considering the following questions:   

  • Within the past 10 days, have you been diagnosed with, or tested positive for, COVID-19?

    • A cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing?

    • Headache or a sore throat? 
    • A persistent runny nose? 
    • Diarrhea?
