Our Commitment to COVID-19 Safety 

In these uncertain times, we are committed to making sure you and your children are safe at Riversongs!  We are taking all the necessary precautions to run our Riversongs Events.  Our concerts will have limited seating and all performances will be held outdoors (weather permitting).  We will also enforce social distancing protocols and have smaller groups during performances and weekend event sessions.  If we come and make music, art and poetry, together we can show the strength of the human spirit!
