UPDATE: Keep Yourself Safe - Keep Others Safe

Due to a rise in COVID-19 cases, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has issued a face mask advisory. Although it is not a requirement for patrons, it continues to be the policy of the Flint Institute of Music (FIM) that for the safety of its staff and patrons, masks and vaccinations are highly recommended. Please Keep Yourself and Others Safe.

Attendance at an event or performance may increase your risk of contracting an illness such as COVID-19. As such, your attendance is an acknowledgment of that risk and an agreement to release FIM of any liability should you or anyone in your party be diagnosed with an illness. Please do not attend the event should you be or have recently been sick.

Wearing a mask, and providing Proof of Vaccination, or Proof of a Negative COVID-19 test result, MAY BE REQUIRED for entry, based on specific union and artist contracts in effect at the time.
