How can we process what humanity has been through since early 2020? We are all scarred by loss, fear, grief, and division, even as we all turn our eyes to see a brighter future.

We invite you to an understanding beyond words in an extraordinary new season of themed programs conveying Hope, Remembrance, Endurance, Faith and more. Join us for Mount Vernon Music’s remarkable 16th season of Ways Forward.

Please go to our Season Brochure page to view the brochure of the 2021-2022 season, or click on the image on the right.

At this time, in keeping with industry standards for the safety of our performers and you, our audience members, we respectfully request and require that you wear a mask/face covering in Mount Vernon Music Hall, including during performances, regardless of vaccination status. Masks/face coverings must be worn over both the mouth and nose. Mount Vernon Music will provide disposable masks for attendees if needed.

Please note that acceptable masks exclude the following:
Masks with slits, exhalation valves, or punctures
Face shields 
Bandanas, scarves, ski masks, or balaclavas
Shirt or sweater collars (e.g., turtleneck collars) pulled up over the mouth and nose
