Your health and wellbeing and that of all of patrons, performers, and staff, is very important to us.
When attending a performance, please plan ahead to consider others, and to play your part in making attending performances enjoyable and safe.
Melbourne Chamber Orchestra has developed a COVIDSafe Plan for all aspects of its operation. To learn more about our COVIDSafe plans for audiences and performances, please download one of the COVIDSafe Plans.



Please note that our performers will arrive on-stage and depart wearing face masks, but while they are playing, they will be doing so without face masks. Performing is a physically-demanding activity, and the ability to perform is impeded by masks.
