Health & Safety at Blossom Music Center

The easing of Covid-19 health and safety restrictions by Governor DeWine is indeed good news. We continue to keep the health and safety of everyone — guests, musicians, staff, and volunteers — as our first priority and intend to continue to implement protocols and procedures to ensure that our concert experience is safe and enjoyable.

All protocols are in accordance with the guidelines from the State of Ohio and Summit County health department, and in consultation with the Cleveland Clinic.

Clean Spaces

Comprehensive, continuing, and consistent cleaning procedures are in place throughout Blossom Music Center.

Masks & Face Coverings are Recommended

Guests who have not been vaccinated are required to wear a mask.

Socially distanced seating and limited capacities
  • To ensure the comfort and safety of our guests, capacities in the Pavilion and on the Lawn will be limited.
  • “Aisles” will be marked on the lawn and guests will be encouraged to maintain 6’ distance between parties.
  • Pavilion ticket holders may picnic on the grounds prior to performances but will be asked to be seated in their pavilion seats for the performance. Lawn ticket holders will not be admitted to the pavilion, as general admission seating for lawn patrons is not available.

Movie Concert Cancellations

Two previously announced movie concerts, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in Concert and Harry Potter and the Chamber of SecretsTM in Concert, will unfortunately not take place in the 2021 season.

While it is the Orchestra’s intention to reschedule one or both of these concerts in a future Blossom season, until large audiences and a full orchestra can safely be accommodated, these concerts are canceled.
