Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ (FOKO) COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Last Updated: December 19, 2022 at 8:00 a.m.

Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ’s first priority continues to be the health and safety of our patrons, musicians, staff and the greater community. We are constantly assessing our concert safety protocols to ensure we can bring music to you safely this season and beyond.

Unless otherwise directed by city, state or federal health officials, the following policies will be in effect until further notice for concerts at Merrill Auditorium.

FOKO follows the safety guidelines recommended by the CDC, which are followed and enforced by the City of Portland. At this time, masking is no longer required but is still recommended for those who may be at high risk. For those of you who wish to continue to wear a mask during visits to Merrill Auditorium, we welcome you to continue to do so freely.
