The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association will require proof of full vaccination for audience members, staff and artists at LA Phil-presented concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall beginning Oct. 9.
The policy will only be limited as required by law. The LA Phil will also follow the guidelines of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, which requires all persons to wear masks indoors.
Patrons must have received the final dose of a vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at least two weeks before entering Walt Disney Concert Hall for LA Phil-presented performances.
Along with their ticket, attendees will need to bring a photo ID and either their physical vaccination card, a picture of their vaccination card or a digital vaccination record. All California residents may request a digital vaccination record at MyVaccineRecord.cdph.ca.gov.
Current ticket holders who will not be fully vaccinated by the date of their planned visit may receive a credit to their account or request a full refund of the cost of their tickets. Subscribers who choose not to renew their tickets this season will have their seat locations retained and the opportunity to renew them for the 2022-23 season.
Because children under the age of 12 are not currently eligible to receive the vaccine, the LA Phil is canceling the first two programs in its Toyota Symphony for Youth series: “The Composer is Dead” (Oct. 30 and Nov. 6) and Ellington’s “Nutcracker” (Dec. 4 and 11).
As soon as children under the age of 12 become eligible to receive a vaccine, fully vaccinated children will be welcomed back to LA Phil concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
The new guidelines for Walt Disney Concert Hall do not impact the LA Phil’s outdoor venues, the Hollywood Bowl and the Ford. Guidelines for visiting those venues are available at hollywoodbowl.com/safety and theford.com/safety.
