Spread the Word: The Symphony is Back In-Person!

The Idaho Falls Symphony is excited to announce the return of in-person audiences for the remainder of the 2021-22 season! After more than 21 months, we are excited to welcome audiences back into the concert hall to share the thrill of live music. 

The Winter Concert of the Idaho Falls Symphony Youth Orchestra program will kick things off on Thursday, December 2nd at 7:00pm in the Civic Center for the Performing Arts. The concert is free and open to the public with general admission seating, and audiences of all ages are asked to follow the safety criteria outlined below.

Then at long last, the first concert for paid ticket holders in their reserved seats arrives on Saturday, December 11th, at 7:30pm, with a heartfelt holiday concert called "The Snowman Movie and Baroque Delights,” featuring the animated film conducted live by Music Director Thomas Heuser with the full Symphony orchestra.

In-person tickets are now available for The Snowman Movie, and although the movie will not be possible to stream, the orchestral performance will still be broadcast live online. In-person tickets are also available for the rest of the season through the spring of 2022.

Safety Criteria: We want to make our experience safe and enjoyable! In order to gather safely, patrons planning to attend Symphony events are asked to follow current CDC guidelines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. According to CDC guidelines for areas experiencing high spread of the virus, patrons planning to attend in-person will follow the criteria outlined below:

  • Face Coverings: Properly fitted face coverings are to be worn by all audience members while indoors. Face masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the venue.

  • Physical Distancing: As best you are able, practice physical distancing when indoors. The Civic Center for the Performing Arts is currently only able to accommodate 50% of its capacity. The Symphony will accommodate physical distancing requests.

  • Format: Concert lengths will be shortened and intermissions curtailed. Concessions will not be available at this time. Simultaneous Live Stream broadcasts of our shows will be provided for every concert where sync licenses can be obtained. 

  • Illness: Anyone experiencing symptoms of illness, awaiting test results for a COVID-19 test, or having a fever of more than 100.3° within the last 24 hours prior to any event are asked to stay home and join us virtually through the Live Stream.

We are asking our in-person audiences to join our efforts to keep the health and wellbeing of our community in mind. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Idaho Falls Symphony relies on the generosity and support of our community, patrons, donors, and sponsors to be able to bring live music to the region. Being unable to gather and grow our community during the ongoing pandemic has been difficult, and we are thankful for your continued patience.

For all future events, the IFS will continue to follow CDC, State, and local guidelines as they pertain to COVID-19 and safe indoor gatherings and will respond to any changes. Our main priority is the health and safety of all patrons, performers, staff, and volunteers. If circumstances change, adjustments, postponements, and cancellations may occur and we will be ready to notify attendees immediately. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have, and thank you for your continued support of the Idaho Falls Symphony.
