We all have a part to play!

As we welcome you back to Music Hall and the Aronoff Center, the health and well-being of our audiences, staff, volunteers, and artists remains our number one priority. 

Due to the recent lifting of public health orders by the State of Ohio, new recommendations by the CDC, the ongoing increase in vaccinations, and the decrease of COVID-19 cases in our region, we are currently in the process of revising our health and safety protocols for the reopening of the Aronoff Center and Music Hall at full capacity later this summer.

Below you will find our most recent procedures to help you plan for your visit. Note that these protocols will most likely change as we get closer to reopening. Please refer back to this page of our website or call our Ticket Office at (513) 621-2787 (ARTS] closer to your event date for the most current information.
