CMS COVID-19 Policy

Updated April 8, 2022 

  • Due to a review of the Webster University masking policy, the Community Music School will move to a mask-optional policy to match the University policy.
  • For the safety of our audiences and performers, masks continue to be required for attendance at all College of Fine Arts (including CMS) indoor events, regardless of vaccination status. This includes all concerts, theatre and dance productions, and gallery openings.  All attendees are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Webster University students and employees are required to be vaccinated in accordance with Webster University policy.
  • Please know that our number one priority is the safety, health and well-being of our audiences, staff, faculty and the young artists whose families have entrusted us with their care.
  • The CMS recommends that all vaccination-eligible individuals pursue getting vaccinated and boosted.
