Current COVID-19 Policies and Procedures

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Chor Leoni has strictly adhered to current Provincial Health Officer regulations to ensure the health and safety of our participants, singers, staff, and audience members. We continue to monitor PHO health regulations should anything change to the current policies. Please check these policies and procedures for the most up-to-date information on our concerts and activities.

Concerts and Audiences

While attending our concerts, we welcome you into a community that shares a love for the transformative power of choral singing. So, first and foremost, we ask that you care for your fellow audience members. Please do not attend our concerts, activities, or events if you’re currently feeling any symptoms of COVID-19 or if you just recovered from COVID-19 and it has not been 10 days since the onset of your symptoms.

While masks are no longer mandatory, we request that you wear a mask for the 75-minute duration of the concert. This will be communicated in pre-concert messaging and at the venue.

Please note that masks are mandatory at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts as per UBC guidelines.

We will have masks available for anyone who needs one. Importantly, if you feel you need or want to wear a mask for an added level of protection, we want you to feel comfortable doing so without prejudice or discrimination. We recommend against single-layer cloth masks in favour of medical/KN95/N95 options.

Concerts and Performers

Masks are optional for performers. Should our singers want or need to wear a mask for added protection, they are able to do so without prejudice or discrimination. All Chor Leoni singers have had at least two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Other Activities

VanMan Summit Participants: Due to the number of participants, masks will be mandatory for participants of the VanMan Summit and for mass-group numbers. Masks will be optional for solo sets. We encourage all participants to take a COVID-19 rapid antigen test prior to attending VanMan Summit activities.

Can I use digital tickets on my phone?

Yes, paperless tickets are preferred! You do not have to print out your tickets. Just have the pdf ready for scanning at the door.

How do I get a student ticket?

$10 rush tickets are available for all full-time students for all performances except the VanMan Summit Concert. Please bring a valid student ID to the performance. Check at the front door prior to the performance for availability.

What time should I arrive for the concert?

All of our concerts have reserved seating except for the Canadian Choral Composition Competition. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before your performance to ensure you get settled in time.

How long are Chor Leoni concerts?

Our shows are 75 minutes, without intermission.

What happens if I arrive late?

Our Front of House Manager will seat you at an appropriate break in the show.

Why aren’t you offering subscriptions this season?

To accommodate reduced capacity, Chor Leoni has made the difficult decision to suspend subscription package sales this season. They will return for 2022/23.

Will there be digital broadcasts this season?

Yes. We will be offering a digital concert alongside each of our live performances. Information and the opportunity to RSVP to receive the viewing link will be available one month prior to the live show.

How old should children be to attend a Chor Leoni concert?

It isn’t recommended for children under six years of age to attend Chor Leoni concerts. They typically find it difficult to sit still for the duration of the performance and may disturb other concertgoers if fidgeting or making noise.

What should I do about my phone or camera during a concert?

First, please silence your devices before entering the venue. Feel free to take photos before and after the show (St. Andrew’s-Wesley is stunning!) During the performance, please do not take photos or videos unless Erick gives you permission to do so during a specific song in the show.

I took a great photo, how do I share it?

We’d love to see it! Please tag @chorleoni in your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts.
