    Hello “Geezer” — The press release and the event page ( is pretty comprehensive and makes no mention of vaccination requirements. However, it’s generally a good idea to wear a mask in larger groups of people, especially if you feel more secure doing so.

  2. OldGeezer says:

    Does the audience need to have proof of vaccination and does anyone know if it is safe to sing in other group activities now in enclosed spaces? Especially for seniors like myself?
