ORS’s Commitment to Health and Safety 

ORS is dedicated to creating a safe environment for our singers, patrons, volunteers, contractors/vendors, and staff as we return to in-person rehearsals, performances, and events.

Safety Requirements

Proof of full vaccination* required for all performers, patrons, staff, contractors/vendors, and volunteers at any in-person event, rehearsal, or performance.

  • Singers in the ORS adult choir and any guest performers joining them on stage in the 2021-2022 season (July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022) must be fully vaccinated* against COVID-19 to participate in any in-person rehearsal, performance, or event. Performers must present proof of full vaccination to an Oregon Repertory Singers staff and/or volunteer prior to their first in-person rehearsal, performance, or event.
  • Singers in the ORS youth choir in the 2021-2022 season (July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022) must be fully vaccinated* against COVID-19 to participate in any in-person rehearsals, performances, or events. Singers must present proof of full vaccination to an Oregon Repertory Singers staff and/or volunteer prior to their first in-person rehearsal, performance or event. Singers who are not eligible for the vaccine may be permitted to participate in online class offerings, when available. 
  • Patrons, staff, contractors/vendors, and volunteers must be fully vaccinated* against COVID-19 to participate in any in-person rehearsals, performances, or events. Patrons, staff, contractors/vendors, and volunteers must present proof of full vaccination to an Oregon Repertory Singers staff and/or volunteer completed prior to any in-person rehearsals, performances, or events. 
  • Unvaccinated children will not be admitted to any ticketed event at this time.

*Fully Vaccinated is defined as 14 days after having received the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, or the one dose of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 Vaccine.

ORS understands that not everyone is able to receive a vaccination. Online versions of all of our concerts will be available for those who are not vaccinated or who feel uncomfortable attending a live performance. 

Mask and Social Distancing Requirements

  • ORS will adhere to current OHA and Multnomah County Guidelines regarding masks and distancing.
  • Patrons may be required to wear masks and/or distance depending on the regulations at the time of performance.
  • ORS will adhere to venue policies for all rehearsal and performance spaces.  
  • ORS reserves the right to require masks and social distancing and update/modify the policy at any time. 

Ticketing Policy

  • Concert dates are subject to changes and/or cancellations
  • In the event of a concert cancellation, ORS staff and/or volunteers will contact ticket holders at the earliest possible time to discuss your ticketing options, including receiving a full refund (less ticketing fees), exchanges/vouchers (TBD), or transitioning the value of your ticket purchase to a tax-deductible donation. 

Contactless Tickets & Programs

Tickets will be digital-only (no physical tickets) and will be scanned from phones or printouts with nocontact scanners.

Digital programs will be made available via email prior to the show. 


Other

ORS adult choir October 2021 and December 2021 concerts will be 60-75 minutes in length with no intermission. We hope this minimizes the audience’s need for the lobby, restrooms, and other public spaces. Online versions of all of our concerts will be available for those who are not vaccinated or who feel uncomfortable attending a live performance.  

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19, and its variants, are extremely contagious diseases that can lead to severe illness and death. Anyone attending an Oregon Repertory Singers rehearsal or concert voluntarily assumes all risk associated with exposure to COVID-19 and agrees to abide by all policies as well as posted and/or verbal direction by Oregon Repertory Singers staff, volunteers, and/or concert venue staff. Thank you for supporting Oregon Repertory Singers and for helping to keep each other healthy and safe.

Oregon Repertory Singers is a proud signer of the Portland Performing Arts Vaccine Coalition.
