**This is an in-person workshop. There will be no online/hybrid option for this workshop. As per our community standards around safe practices mitigating the spread of Covid-19, we will be requiring proof of vaccination and properly worn masks for entry into the workshop.
For the safety and security of all members and participants and in accordance with best practices in the performing arts and music industry, the board has decided that we will continue requiring COVID vaccinations for our in-person workshops. The board will continue to evaluate this as the year progresses. At this time, we will not be offering an online option as we do not have the resources to support both in-person and online workshops. Please check on the website and on the Hotline emails for further communication regarding individual needs for each workshop moving forward. Please be patient and understanding as we try to figure out what is best for the chapter as a whole and how to make sure all of our members are as safe as possible during these times.
