A Note On Covid-19 Health & Safety Protocols
It is Face the Music’s goal and priority to hold in-person rehearsals once again for the 2021-22
Season – now on Saturdays at Kaufman Music Center’s main building (129 W 67th St).
As we prioritize the wellbeing of our students, coaches, staff, guest artists, and organization, our primary concern is for everyone’s health and safety. Due to the nature of frequently changing regulations and conditions, official Covid-19 measures will be shared directly with members and families. Baseline, students should expect to begin the season masked, and wind players should plan for masks with mouthpiece holes and bell covers.
