Rochester Arts and Entertainment Excited to Reopen in April

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Starting next month, the arts and entertainment venue will be allowed to reopen with capacity limitations.

“It is fantastic news for us in the performing arts industry,” Curtis Long, president and CEO of Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra said. “We have essentially been shut down completely from performing for live audiences for a long, long time.”

Since the start of the pandemic, performances have been held virtually, but will likely make a return to the Eastman Theatre in Rochester after new guidance from the governor this week.

“We’re eager for an opportunity to get back to playing for a live audience during the orchestra, either indoors or outdoors,” said Long. “The announcement yesterday allowed for the possibility for either of those things to start happening in April.”

Venues will be able to operate at 33% capacity, or up to 100 people indoors and up to 200 people outdoors.
