In brief, the significant changes are:

  • masks will be  “strongly recommended” rather than mandatory, both at rehearsals and at concerts

  • musicians may elect to share music stands

  • the CCO Vaccination Policy (proof of 3 vaccinations) will be maintained, although new musicians who have 2 vaccinations will be permitted to attend two rehearsals before being required to show proof of their third vaccination. 

Please review the recommendations in the April 14 Announcements, which are posted on the Musicians Only portal of the CCO website, If you have comments or concerns, please email before April 27.
