We’re excited to welcome you back! The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra continues to strictly observe the health and safety recommendations of the Manitoba government as the health and safety of our audiences, artists and staff are our top priority. As restrictions change, we will continue to monitor the province’s recommendations and adjust seating policies accordingly.

As of September 7, 2021, common areas of the Manitoba Centennial Centre and Centennial Concert Hall will re-open to full seating capacity. 

Our current health and safety protocols are below. Please review them before your performance and if you have any questions, please call the Box Office at 204-949-3999 or email boxoffice@wso.mb.ca.

For more information on the Centennial Concert Hall’s reopening protocols and additional information on entry procedures, parking, venue cleaning and their symptom-free policy, visit their website.

Immunization & QR Code 

As per current Manitoba Public Health orders, patrons will need to present their Manitoba Immunization Card or digital QR code and matching photo ID to enter the Centennial Concert Hall.

Children who do not meet the current vaccination minimum age requirements may attend performances provided they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated caregiver.

Venue Capacity

Manitoba Public Health is allowing venues including the Centennial Concert Hall to open at 100% capacity. As an additional safety precaution, the WSO will continue to implement social distancing of two seats between households or cohorts in each row on the first floor and balconies. Due to the seating configurations in the loges, these sections will be seated at 100% capacity.


The WSO and Centennial Concert Hall will require patrons to wear a mask indoors and follow COVID-19 fundamentals to guard against the spread of the virus. Staff, artists and anyone affiliated with a performer will also be required to wear a mask while inside the Concert Hall (excludes children under five, some other exceptions may apply).
