Bronx Arts Ensemble (BAE) is excited to return to live events going into our 50th concert season. In order to ensure the safety of our musicians, staff, and audience members we are implementing the following safety and health guidelines. We are carefully monitoring the changing health climate in the NYC area and will update these guidelines as necessary. 


All musicians and audience members must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and must show proof of vaccination prior to admission to the event. Children under 12 will not be allowed until a vaccine is available for them. 

For the safety of all, we regret that we are unable to offer any exceptions for those who are not vaccinated.

Windows/doors will be open to the extent feasible and as weather allows. Some of our partner venues may have additional guidelines in place.

If you are feeling unwell or have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 10 days, please stay home.
