COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols/Ticket Policy

COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols

Our top priority is the safety of our community, as well as our patrons, musicians and staff. In light of current COVID risk levels, the Shreveport Symphony has instituted protocols for its upcoming performances. These protocols apply to all patrons, staff and volunteers:

  • A negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours (3 days) of your scheduled concert for all patrons aged 12 or older. In lieu of a negative test result, patrons can show proof of vaccination.  The performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Masks will also be required, regardless of vaccination status, except while eating or drinking in designated areas.
  • Seats, bathrooms and other high-touch surfaces will be thoroughly sanitized before each show. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the venue for your personal use.
  • Ticket holders who do not comply with this policy will not be admitted.

This is our policy for the foreseeable future. The SSO will continue to monitor CDC, federal, state and local guidelines, and we will notify ticket holders of any changes as the situation progresses.

Tickets will be emailed before each performance. Please be prepared to show your ticket (either printed or on your smartphone) and vaccination card (hardcopy or mobile phone) to enter performances.

We thank you in advance for your understanding as we continue to ensure the health and safety of our musicians, staff and patrons.

COVID-19 Ticket Policy

Plans will adjust in accordance with public health measures as they evolve in the coming months. Patrons unable to meet the above requirements may request a gift certificate, donate the tickets for a tax credit or request a refund the week of the scheduled performance. If any policy change makes you uncomfortable, or if you or someone in your party is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, please call our Box Office at 318.227.TUNE (8863) no later than 4 hours prior to the event.


Do kids under 12 need to provide a negative COVID-19 test result?
A negative test result is not required for children under 12 years old. However, all kids aged 2 and older must wear a mask when not eating or drinking.

Will indoor seating be socially distanced?
Indoor events have returned to full capacity.

Will concessions still be offered?
Concessions will be offered at RiverView Theater events, but will be limited to outdoor and lobby spaces.

What can I do with my tickets if I decide not to attend?
You can turn your tickets into a gift certificate that will be good for one year, donate your tickets back to the SSO and receive a tax credit, or request a refund. Call the Box Office at 318.227.TUNE (8863) or email at with questions or requests.
