Concert Protocols for COVID-19


Most of Modern Marimba’s 2021-2022 season will be held in outdoor areas, concerts will last one (1) hour without intermission, and concerts will be limited to socially-distanced audiences. We’ve carefully designed these precautions to ensure safe and enjoyable outdoor performances for our attendees. When we move indoors, we partner with arts organizations who are part of #SafeArtsSarasota and will provide our audiences with further instructions about each venue.
