PCMS Concerts & COVID-19

Have a question that’s not answered here? Send us a message on Facebook or by email.


As our 36th Season continues, we want to update you on the COVID-19 protocols for our spring performances. We remain committed to doing all we can to ensure a safe and healthy concert experience for everyone. Our protocols were developed with this goal in mind, in accordance with the rules imposed by our concert venues, and in consultation with our Covid Task Force.


Covid Safety Protocols

At this time, and until further notice, all PCMS audience members, staff, and musicians must abide by Kimmel Center Covid protocols. In order to attend performances at the American Philosophical Society and Church of the Holy Trinity, proof of vaccination and a photo ID (or a pre-approved exemption) are required. Proof of vaccination can be the physical ID card or a photo/copy (a photo on your phone is acceptable). Everyone must also wear a mask while inside these venues (note that musicians will have the option to perform without masks once on stage). Children under the age of 5 are allowed entry when accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.

This policy is subject to change, and we will continue to seek guidance from the CDC and local health authorities. Details and further information about the Kimmel Center’s policy are available on the Kimmel Cultural Campus's Safe and Clean Commitment page.

If you do not feel comfortable with these protocols, we will issue you a refund. If you have questions, please call our Box Office at 215-569-8080 to speak with Bradford or Michelle. Please note that our concerts at the Philosophical Society will continue to be available through livestreaming.


Social Distancing & Intermissions

Intermissions return in 2022. All programs/repertoire (that include an intermission) will be as originally announced in the spring of 2021 and include a 15 minute break. 

While we have not imposed strict social distancing measures, we are continuing our policy of limiting the audience capacity for all of our 2021-22 performances. There is still reserved seating, but if you feel more comfortable moving to a less crowded seating area, you will be free to do so.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to adjust to the ongoing health situation. For future updates on our safety protocols and procedures, please visit this page or join our email list.
