Covid Protocols

The Main Focus of The Bethany Oratorio Society in 2021 is the safety of our musicians and audience members!


-Beautiful Presser Hall Auditorium is large enough that Handel’s Messiah WILL be performed on Easter Sunday with socially distanced and masked full orchestra and chorus!


-All events will be livestreamed!


-If the Covid-19 situation improves a limited number of tickets will be sold at the door on the day of events.  Please watch this website and social media for details as events approach.


-All singers will be provided with special RESONANCE Singing Masks.  These masks are made of a very high thread-count cotton outer shell, with a wicking technical knit polyester on the inside, knit with bamboo charcoal that is naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial.  Each mask also has a disposable filter and a long double wire and silicone seal in the nose panel to keep aerosol and droplets contained.


If you have any questions about safety protocols please reach out to Messiah Festival Coordinator Manda Deegan at!
