We are committed to making sure all of our patrons, musicians, staff and volunteers can do so safely.
JAZZ ROOM & Venue Policies
As an affiliate organization of Blumenthal Performing Arts, JazzArts Charlotte will be following BPA COVID-19 venue policies and safety guidelines throughout the season. To find more information about these policies, including masking, food and beverage consumption, and ticket refunding, please visit the Blumenthal website.
At this time, all guests are required to wear masks indoors at all Blumenthal venues, except when consuming food or beverages in designated areas. This includes the Stage Door Theater, Booth Playhouse, and Spirits Square.
Due to the current COVID-19 safety requirements outlined by the Blumenthal, we are unable to offer food and beverage to JAZZ ROOM patrons at the Stage Door Theater.
For cabaret table tickets and subscriptions, this adjustment has been considered in our current pricing.
We will be able to offer bar service for our Nov. and Dec. shows at Booth Playhouse, where there is adequate space for social distancing while consuming food and beverage. We will endeavor to identify opportunities for you and fellow jazz fans to gather for a drink or a bite before and after the shows, so keep your eyes out for special offers just for ticketholders.
If the situation improves throughout the season, we look forward to resuming bar service at the Stage Door Theater and will keep patrons updated here.
JazzArts Youth Fall Ensembles + Workshops begin in person September. JazzArts Charlotte programs are small group environments. JazzArts Charlotte will continue to follow the Governors directives and the lead of CMS in creating policies and procedures that maximize the learning experience and the health and safety of every student.

We’re doing all we can to bring the best of jazz programs to you no matter the circumstances, and we hope you’re tuning into our Keep Jazz A-Live-Streaming programs.

Please check back, subscribe to our newsletters and follow us on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter for updates as well as new ways to continue enjoying jazz from your living room.
Our Spirit Square office is open on a limited basis. The JazzArts Charlotte team is diligently working from home as well, to continue the momentum of jazz in our community in every way we can. Meanwhile, please have patience as we have limited access to phones and files.
We are committed to offering the highest quality live music performances and educational programs, but we have a greater responsibility of providing a safe space to our audiences, students/families, artists, volunteers, and staff.
What can you do to bring back the music?
To help slow the spread of COVID-19, we ask you to join us in practicing the 3 Ws as outlined by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services:
- Wait at least six feet apart and avoid close contact when indoors
- Wear a cloth face covering at all times indoors
- Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer
Until we can be together, we hope to see you online.
