by purchasing a ticket to an in-person concert or event, I agree to the following attendance policies
Thank you for doing your part, along with the staff and artists of Chamber Music Pittsburgh, to keep everyone as safe as possible.
CMP will carefully monitor governmental and health regulations up to and on the day of the concert. Should we be required to hold the concert without an audience, each in-person ticket will be automatically converted to an online weblink which you will receive one week following the concert.
If CMP is forced to reduce the number of in-person patrons, and that number falls below the number of in-person tickets already sold, in-person ticket sales will be terminated and the most recent in-person tickets will be converted to an online weblink in order to achieve the reduced in-person capacity mandate.
