Additional information: Construction is ongoing in the area of the Riverloop Amphitheatre and the Waterloo Center for the Arts. The west parking lot of the Waterloo Center for the Arts and the overflow lot across Commercial Street from the Center are accessible by car and are available for free parking. Walk up tickets are available beginning at 3:00 p.m. at the north end of the Arts Mall.  Access the Mall from W. 3rd and Cedar Streets. Disabled access to the Amphitheatre is via the ramp at the east end of the Phelps Youth Pavilion at the Waterloo Center for the Arts.

Location change: Due to the surge of the Delta variant of Covid-19, this concert has been moved from the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center to the RiverLoop Amphitheatre. Seating for the relocated performance will be general admission. Tickets purchased for the original location will be honored at this relocated performance; if you have already purchased tickets to the GBPAC performance we will be in touch with you to review your options. 

The relocation of this concert is in keeping with ongoing efforts by the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony to maximize the safety of patrons, musicians, volunteers and staff members.  The outdoor setting of the RiverLoop Amphitheatre will allow youth under 12, for whom no vaccine is currently available, to take advantage of the safe open-air setting as well as maintain maximum social distancing. Patrons older than 12 are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated and all patrons are encouraged to wear masks while attending symphony events.  

wcfsymphony only holds performances under conditions that minimize the risk to patrons, musicians, staff and volunteers from Covid-19 and other communicable diseases.  In doing so, we continually stay abreast of the latest reliable information about how Covid-19 and other diseases are spread in performance settings.
