We want your time at the 25th Annual Symphony at Salk, a concert under the stars, to be fun and entertaining. As such, safety protocols will be implemented based on best practice recommendations and any applicable requirements from local, state and federal authorities at the time of the event to minimize risks associated with infectious agents such as COVID-19 for the safety of our employees, guests, community and environment.
Who will be providing the musical entertainment?
This year’s concert under the stars will feature a thrilling private performance by the legendary Josh Groban and the talented San Diego Symphony. It’s sure to be a spectacular night of music.
Will a meal be provided?
Yes. We anticipate that, following a champagne reception, attendees will be served a gourmet dinner and wine while the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean and basks the courtyard in a warm glow.
Will individual tickets be sold?
Though we are unable to sell individual tickets at this time, we will make an announcement should restrictions change, and additional seating added. Current capacity restrictions only allow the sponsors of Symphony at Salk who underwrite the performances, along with their guests, to attend the event.
What is the sponsor level minimum?
The minimum amount to sponsor the concert this year is $10,000 for a table of four. This year we anticipate modifying our regular programming in order to ensure the utmost safety of our guests, staff and vendors.
What if the event gets cancelled?
In the unlikely event Symphony at Salk is canceled due to COVID-19 or inclement weather, sponsorship contributions will be considered non-refundable donations to help to advance the critical scientific research at Salk.
What health and safety protocols will be in place at the event?
The Institute will follow safety protocols based on best practice recommendations and any applicable requirements of local, state and federal authorities at the time of the event. We are committed to ensuring everyone in attendance follows all public health guidelines that will be current at the time of the concert. We will have updated and detailed guidance of the safety measures on our website before the event, including around sanitization protocols, masks, social distancing, and more.
What should I do if I start to feel sick during the event?
Anyone who starts to feel ill at the event should immediately exit the event. If you feel ill at any point before leaving or on your way to the Salk Institute, we ask that you please remain or return home.
Do attendees need to be vaccinated to attend the event?
It is anticipated that all guests, vendors and staff working the event will be vaccinated. More information on vaccination will be coming soon.
