A RETURN TO LIVE PERFORMANCE!
The Oneonta Concert Association is pleased to be able to revive our suspended 93rd season after more than a year of dormant isolation due to the Covid pandemic. We have rescheduled for 2021-2022 a full complement of our usual five-concert season from among the concerts we were forced to cancel from March 2020 through April 2021 and are eagerly looking forward to being able to provide beautiful live music once again. We greatly appreciate everyone’s patience — audience and performers alike — and are especially grateful for our subscribers’ and sponsors’ continuing support during the months of enforced shut-down and uncertainty. We now look forward to seeing you at the performances! If any postponement becomes necessary once again, we will notify everyone on this website, on other public media, and via email newsletters. Stay tuned! And see our “Pick 3” option on the Subscriptions page for a special offer.
We will follow all state and local regulations and venue requirements for everyone’s safety during the live concerts. In addition, because our audience’s well-being is extremely important to us, we will currently adhere to the following Covid-related safety precautions:
• All persons will be required to wear face coverings inside the building at concerts, regardless of vaccination status.
• We will use socially-distanced seating, blocking off every other row of seats, and we ask audience members to seat themselves six feet or so apart from others who are not part of their own group.
• We very strongly encourage all eligible people to be fully vaccinated before coming to the concert.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these precautions, but under the current circumstances they are the only responsible way of carrying on the OCA’s mission of offering live performances to our community. Thank you for your understanding.
The Oneonta Concert Association (OCA), founded in 1928, is the area’s oldest cultural organization. Our mission is to present diverse, audience-engaging, world-class cultural offerings of live music and dance at an affordable price to the Western Catskills region. Over the decades we’ve presented some amazing performers, including: Grammy winners Ron Carter and Mark O’Connor; the Vienna Boys Choir; Count Basie Orchestra; Scotland’s Battlefield Band; the Trapp Family Singers; Cantus; Manhattan Brass; Boston Chamber Music Society; Alvin Ailey dance; the Senegal ballet, and other artists celebrated the world over.
OCA programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of New York State’s Governor and Legislature. OCA is also supported by the Dewar Foundation, Eggleston Foundation, and other foundations. For more information about events in Otsego County, call (800) 843-3394
