Plan Your Visit

Our promise to you is to create a safe and comfortable environment to once again enjoy Your Philadelphia Orchestra—live and in person—in Verizon Hall. 

Return to Verizon Hall with Confidence

While we can’t control the uncertainties of the pandemic, we can create a safe and comfortable return for you to Verizon Hall. We will always put the safety of our patrons, artists, and staff first. We are eager to welcome you safely to the Kimmel Cultural Campus. Vaccine and Mask requirements remain in place in all venues.

  • The Kimmel Cultural Campus continues to require that all patrons 5 years of age and older provide proof of full vaccination to attend all indoor public performances and events, including Orchestra performances at the Kimmel Center and Academy of Music.
  • A physical copy, photo, or digital copy of your COVID-19 vaccination card will be required for entry into Kimmel Cultural Campus buildings. Patrons 18 years of age and older will also need to show a photo ID. Anyone leaving an event will need to go through the vaccination check point again for re-entry.
  • Unvaccinated children under 5 will be required to show a negative test result. While rapid tests (taken within 48 hours of event) are accepted, PCR tests are preferred (taken within 72 hours of event).
  • All patrons are still required to wear masks inside the venue at all times, except when consuming food or beverage. Prolonged periods of mask removal are not permitted.

“Fully Vaccinated” means that a guest’s event on our Campus is at least 14 days after their final COVID-19 vaccine dose.

Vaccination check points are located outside of all Kimmel Cultural Campus venues. Patrons will be allowed into the venues once their vaccine card or photo of their vaccine card has been presented to our security personnel. Please allow extra time for this process.
