We are grateful for the progress being made each day to reduce the dangers from COVID-19. Prioritizing the comfort and well-being of all patrons, artists, staff, and volunteers, we are monitoring Baltimore City guidelines and collaborating closely with The Johns Hopkins University.

We anticipate that pandemic conditions will continue to evolve, and we will update this page and stay in close communication with ticketholders throughout the season. If you have questions or thoughts, please email us at info@shriverconcerts.org.


If You Are Sick, Please Stay Home
If you or someone in your party doesn’t feel well, has experienced symptoms of COVID-19 in the previous 72 hours, or has been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to the concert, please stay home and enjoy our Live Concert Streaming option (details below). Our staff and volunteers are expected to do the same.

Share Information with Your Party
Shortly before your concert date, you will receive a Concert Reminder email from us with Shriver Hall Concert Series’ most current COVID-19 Safety Information. Please be aware that only the ticket purchaser will receive these emails, so please be sure to share these it with everyone in your party so that they are aware of what to expect at the concert.

Live Concert Streaming Option
We understand that everyone’s comfort levels will differ as we return to the concert hall. This season, all ticketholders will be able to choose whether to attend concerts in person or to watch a live stream of the performance at home.

We would like to strongly encourage patrons to follow CDC recommendations and avail themselves of the opportunity to be vaccinated against COVID-19. We are aware of the recent announcements from colleague arts organizations in Baltimore updating their health and safety policies to require patrons to provide proof of vaccination or negative PCR test. Please know that we are closely following COVID-19 developments and will share any changes to our policies with patrons by email.


Masks are Mandatory
Out of an abundance of caution and care, our current policy is to require all concert attendees to wear face masks inside the concert venue(s) and auditorium(s). Please review CDC guidance on selecting the best possible mask. Please note that we are monitoring the City’s COVID-19 metrics, consulting with public health experts, and listening to you, our patrons. It is possible that this policy will change. If it does, this page will be amended and we will update ticketholders.

Our Staff is Here to Help
Ushers are available throughout the performance to monitor everyone’s safety and to assist in any way they can. If you have questions or need assistance, please speak to one of our friendly staff.

Good Hygiene
Please wash and sanitize your hands regularly. Soap is provided in all restrooms and hand sanitizer dispensers are located at multiple points through the venue.

Air Circulation
Shriver Hall’s HVAC system has been reviewed to comply with CDC recommendations for building ventilation.

Food and Beverage Concessions
To enable masking at all times, there will not be a food and drink concession bar.
