The protocol herein were developed to provide an outline of the guidelines that need to be followed at
Aeolian Hall in order to ensure the safety of musicians, patrons, volunteers, contractors and staff who participate in Aeolian Hall programs and rentals.
The prescreening questionnaire must be completed before entry to Aeolian Hall.
The Aeolian recommends whenever possible that all participants bring an appropriate
quantity of hand sanitizer and requires that they wear a properly fitted face mask at all times.
Masks are to be used by everyone, at all times, unless playing their instrument requires them
to remove it. Any musician removing their mask to play their instrument would replace it upon
arriving at a suitable rest or tacet within the music. Masks are to be worn when speaking with
anyone else in the building. If you feel the need to remove your mask for a period of time, you
need to remove yourself from the vicinity of other people in the building.
