Arrive Early

For our October and November concerts in 2021, you’ll need to arrive early to show your vaccination card (or copy / picture of it) along with your photo ID. Alternatively, you’ll need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (PCR) no older than 72 hours. For the Fall, we are not having pre-concert chats or post-concert receptions. If you do arrive late, don’t worry; the lobby will be filled with music from the concert and the ushers will assist you to your seats at the next appropriate break in the music.

A Musical Night Out

There are many restaurants in the New London area where you can dine before our concerts. If you drive to the Garde Arts Center, dining near the hall is also a great way to find a parking spot before the regular concert rush. Many of these restaurants get crowded on concert nights, so it is wise to make reservations.
