2022 - 2023 Concert Season
Now in our 20th Year!

The Musical Arts Series Port Clinton Announces Resumption of Most Concerts at the Firelands Presbyterian Church

The Musical Arts Series/Port Clinton steering committee continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 virus recommendations of the CDC, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Ottawa County Health Department.

We hope that with the continued vaccination availability to more age groups in Ohio, the continued use of masks, and social distancing that we can safely continue indoor concerts. This will be dependent on whether the recent decline in COVID-19 cases in Ottawa County and nationwide continues.

If the COVID numbers remain lower, we plan to resume all of our 2022-2023 concerts at The Firelands Presbyterian Church located at 2626 East Harbor Rd. Port Clinton, Oh. 43452, with the exception of the Burning River Brass Christmas concert which will be held at the Port Clinton High School Performing Arts Center. We understand that our patrons and performing artists prefer the intimacy of the Firelands Presbyterian Church venue for chamber music type concerts.

Attendees will no longer be required to provide proof of full COVID vaccination or a certified negative COVID test within (3) days of the concert. All attendees will still be encouraged to wear a mask during the entire performance. Free masks will be available at the ticket booth.

Anyone feeling ill or experiencing symptoms related to a cold or infectious disease is asked to take care of their health and protect others by staying home.

We will observe all current pandemic health recommendations and regulations in effect at the time of each concert. Please check this website or our Facebook page frequently for the latest information about our concerts in 2022 and 2023.

We greatly appreciate the ongoing financial support of our sponsors and season ticket holders.

Sincerely,
The Musical Arts Series/Port Clinton Steering Committee
