Concert Protocols

The AMFS is closely monitoring public health conditions and will operate following all state and county health orders to safeguard its artists, patrons, artist-faculty, students, staff, and community. Guidelines may change at any time; this page will be updated daily to reflect current conditions.

The protocols below reflect the current direction of AMFS concert protocols. This page will include more detail as we get closer to events.

Protocols for Safe Concert-Going

  • Audience capacity will be reduced to make all seating socially distanced. This includes the Karetsky Music Lawn and Kaye Music Garden.

  • Patrons will be seated a safe distance from each other and from any performer on the stage or in the hall. PLEASE BE AWARE, distancing may change at any time, including after you have obtained your seats.

  • All concerts will be 60 to 75 minutes long and will be presented without intermission, unless as noted; audience members will be asked to stay in their seats and refrain from mingling.

  • Restrooms will be available but access will be limited. Please plan accordingly.

  • Everyone on AMFS grounds will wear masks at all times, including performers, except when eating and drinking. 

  • Patron arrivals and departures will be planned for safety, and patrons will be separated for distance on the grounds with signage and stanchions.

  • Ticketing will be via e-ticketing instead of will-call. PLEASE BE AWARE: seating may change if guidelines change, even after obtaining tickets. If it does, new e-tickets will be issued. 

  • Vaccines or tests are not required to attend events.

  • To reduce shared touchpoints, there will be no concessions or merchandise sales at concerts.

  • Please stay home if you or a family member are feeling unwell, or have had contact with anyone who is unwell. Refunds will be issued for anyone with illness-related concerns.
