July 1, 2021 update: PCMS will be developing updated Covid-19 protocols for our fall performances, in compliance with guidelines from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, as well as our concert venues (Kimmel Center, American Philosophical Society, and Church of the Holy Trinity). As more information becomes available, we will update this page accordingly with clarification on the following topics: mask policy, socially-distanced seating (capacity levels), requirement of vaccination ID card, and the overall experience of attending a PCMS concert.

The Society remains committed to providing a safe and healthy venue for our audience, artists, and staff. While attending a PCMS concert may continue to feel a little different, you can expect the highest standards and the same world-class artists on stage.

While we are confident that it will be safe to return to the concert hall this fall, we realize that we cannot be certain of this. Therefore, refunds or exchanges will be available next season to any ticket holder who feels it is not safe for them to attend a concert. All performances at the American Philosophical Society will also be livestreamed so you may enjoy the music from the comfort of home.

For future updates on our safety protocols and procedures, please visit this page or join our email list.
