May 21 Spring Outdoor Concert event: Frequently asked questions
When can tickets be purchased?
Tickets can be purchased up to 11pm on Thursday May 20th (the night before the concert).
How will the seating work? How do I get my tickets?
You will puchase a "pod" of either 2 or 4 seats; this pod will be distanced from other pods. You will need to purchase the appropriate number of pods to accommodate your household (or your household + other people you have been in a pod with)-- for example, for a group of 5, you will need to purchase one pod for 4 and one pod for 2.
Will there be snacks or merchandise (flowers etc) available to buy at the event?
Do to current state restrictions we are not able to sell food, drinks, or merchandise at the event. Flowers and candy leis can be purchased by PRE-ORDER ONLY.
Will there be restrooms?
There will be limited access to restrooms at the event. As we are expecting that it will only last 1.5 hours, there will be no intermission. We ask you to try to plan accordingly and minimize restroom use as much as possible.
Can I bring my own food or drinks?
You can bring your own water, but we will not be permitting any food to be brought in for the event. This will help us to keep our singers safe by having the audience masked throughout the event. And you will be able to focus your attention on the wonderful performances without the sounds of packaging or crunching!
Can I purchase a shout-out for a choir member or advertise my business in the program?
Yes! Forms and more information will be coming soon.
Will the event be livestreamed for those who can't be there in person?
We aren't sure yet if we will be able to livestream the event for family and friends who live outside of Poway-- we are working on it and will keep you posted so you can share the link if we are able to do this. We will likely be able to post videos from the event on our Poway Choir YouTube Channel. Any updates will be posted to the website.
What happens if we have young children in strollers, or need wheelchair seating?
A wheelchair can substitute for any of your seats in your pod (so example, your pod of 4 can be 3 seats plus 1 wheelchair). Let us know when you purchase your ticket if you have any accessibility needs for seating or access to the event.
What safety precautions will be in place?
We are following the state guidance for live performing arts events to keep the performers, audience, and volunteers safe. This includes:
Why can't I purchase an individual seat?
Due to state restrictions, specific guidance for live performing arts events, and the amount of advance planning needed for this event, we will only be offering pods of 2 or 4 seats. Do note that a 2-seat pod for $10 is still less than the cost of an individual seat at our usual PHS Choir concerts, and all funds from ticket sales directly support the choir program. We sincerely appreciate your understanding.
