Covid Pandemic Related Policy for Return to PSA Live Rehearsals and Concerts

In response to the Covid pandemic, the Board of Directors of the Philharmonic Society of Arlington (PSA) established a policy, effective on August 5, 2021, that all singers and musicians are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to participate in PSA activities.  To further assure the safety of everyone, each individual, returning or new, has been asked to show proof of vaccination at the first rehearsal he/she attends. There are no exceptions to this policy.

In order to comply with Arlington indoor mask mandates and the rehearsal venue policies, masks are required at all indoor PSA activities, including rehearsals.  

To attend our in-person concerts, the PSA requires that our audience members of all ages show proof of vaccination against Covid-19 at the door when purchasing tickets. Additionally, masks must be worn at all times by audience members. Attendees will be spaced apart in the audience to allow for  social distancing.

Should you have any questions regarding this PSA policy, please contact Larisa Miller, PSA President, at or Judy Tesnow, PSA Vice-President, at
