Health & Safety Policies

Updated: January 7, 2022


Please note: Due to the current surge in COVID-19 cases and growing health and safety concerns over the Omicron variant, the Songbook Exhibit Gallery is TEMPORARILY CLOSED for the safety of visitors and staff. Please check back for updates, as we look forward to re-opening our doors soon! When our doors re-open the health and safety policies below will apply.


Health & Safety Policies: Amid ongoing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the Great American Songbook Foundation will join the Center for the Performing Arts and its Resident Companies in adopting the following policies and protocols for the start of the Center's 2021-2022 season. Though subject to change as circumstances evolve, these requirements reflect current government health directives and the growing consensus across Arts and Culture organizations to maintain a safer environment.



If you, or others you have interacted with, have experienced any symptoms of illness such as fever, chills, dry cough, shortness of breath or sore throat within the past 14 days, please stay home.



Effective Sept. 20, masks or other appropriate facial coverings will be required upon entry for anyone age 3 or older who is attending events, visiting or working on the Center’s campus, where the Great American Songbook Foundation Exhibit Gallery and offices are housed. Masks must be worn at all times while indoors, except when actively eating or drinking. This requirement applies to patrons, staff, vendors and volunteers.
