“Following guidance from the Tri-Town Health Department, the state and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Boston Symphony’s plans for this summer’s Tanglewood festival now include 3 feet of separation between ticket holders seated in the Koussevitzky Music Shed for all BSO-related performances,” writes Clarence Fanto in Friday’s (6/4) Berkshire Eagle (Pittsfield, MA). “Masking and physical distancing … are recommended for unvaccinated audience members, in line with CDC guidance. The regulations from the local health boards limit total attendance to 9,000—half of the normal capacity. Earlier, the attendance cap had been 25 percent before Gov. Charlie Baker lifted most pandemic-related restrictions as of May 29…. Though the 9,000 overall capacity allowance will apply to all 2021 Popular Artist performances, there will be no capacity restrictions in the Shed (which seats 5,000) for those shows…. As announced previously, all Tanglewood performances will be in the Music Shed…. In consideration of families with children under vaccination age, Tanglewood will not require vaccinations for entrance to the grounds…. Tanglewood does not anticipate veering from the protocols updated on Friday unless further restrictions on capacity levels become necessary should pandemic conditions change over the coming months.”
