COVID-19 Protocols

Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival looks forward to an exciting 30th season, live and in-person! To ensure the safety of our patrons, artists and staff, we will monitor current conditions and update our policy on a concert-to-concert basis.

Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival will closely follow the guidance and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS). We will continue to monitor and adjust our policies as appropriate. 

ArtOps / GLCMF will email our current COVID protocols to ticket-holders a few days prior to concerts and will continue to communicate updates on our website and on social media should protocols change throughout the season.  Please subscribe to our newsletter for weekly updates. 

You can reach out to or call 248-559-2097 with any questions.



We strongly encourage audience members to wear a mask at our concerts and events.

Staff and volunteers are required to wear masks. 



GLCMF strongly recommends COVID vaccinations but no longer requires guests to show proof of vaccination or recent negative test to attend our events. 



We all have a shared responsibility to keep patrons, artists, staff, and volunteers safe.  Please do not attend concerts if you:

  • Feel sick or have cold symptoms
  • Have been exposed to someone who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19 within the past 14 days
  • Have a body temperature of 100.4 or higher, unexplained or abnormal coughing, sneezing, sore throat, fatigue or difficulty breathing
  • Believe you may be carrying or are ill with COVID-19


Please remain respectful of others’ individual choices for COVID safety. 

We understand your concerns over safety during the COVID-19 pandemic and take them very seriously. If you can no longer make it to the concert and would wish to donate or exchange your tickets, you may do so by calling 248-559-2097. Please call us in advance if you will not be able to attend a concert so we can open the seats to others.
