Changes to Our Audience Health and Safety Protocols

Based on guidance from the Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto, masks and proof of vaccination are no longer required at TSO concerts and events. As a reminder, there are also no capacity limitations or social distancing requirements at this time.

The TSO will continue our ongoing commitment to keeping our patrons, musicians, and staff safe. While masks are no longer required, for the safety of everyone attending a TSO performance, we strongly encourage wearing a mask.

As government, organization, and venue guidelines evolve, so may these safety measures. Visit this page often for up-to-date information.
