The Focal Point

The Focal Point
St. Louis’ premiere roots music listening room since 1975

Focal Point will begin outdoor Concert Series Friday, September 11th.

Outdoor Concert Series:

We do not believe it is safe at this time to present concerts indoors in our “friendly confines” but now that the summer heat is diminishing, we have planned a wonderful series of small, outdoor concerts.  We are taking special precautions to inhibit the spread of Covid-19 in accordance with the procedures recommended by the St. Louis County Department of Public Health.  Here I how things will work:

-The concerts will be held on the parking lot at the rear of Focal Point.  Access will be via the alley off of Marietta Ave., across from the Side Project Cellar.

-Tickets will be available ONLY in advance via Brown Paper Tickets (links to which are included below with the concert descriptions).  No tickets will be sold at the door.  Because the county limits gatherings to 50, only 40 tickets can be sold.  All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the musicians.

-Bring your own chairs, like you would for a concert in the park.

-Individuals and groups will set up their chairs at the direction of our volunteer ushers, who will assure that proper distancing is maintained.  If you come with others and want to be seated as a group, you MUST purchase tickets under one name.  Members of a group may set up their chairs in close proximity to others in the group, but the ushers will assure that a distance of 6 ft is maintained between your group and other groups or individuals.

-Masks must be worn when not seated.

-The Maya Café will not be open.  Please feel free to bring your own beverages and snacks.

-Concerts will last approximately 90 minutes.  There will be no intermission.

-There will be only limited restroom availability (so plan ahead ☺).  One unisex, handicap accessible restroom inside our building will be accessible via the rear door opening onto the deck behind the building.  Only one person may enter the building at a time.

-If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Focal Point at 314-328-4810.

Different from the usual Focal Point Experience? Well yes, but you’ll still hear some great music!

 

Focal Point concerts consistently feature top-quality performers whose grounding in various musical traditions educates and enlightens audiences while providing top-notch entertainment. We put on about one hundred concerts yearly and host a variety of groups on our non-concert evenings which include swing, Cajun/Zydeco, Argentine Tango, English Country dance groups, acoustic jams, and improv theater, to name a few.

Focal Point continues to expand our efforts to showcase traditional and original folk music and dance. We are thankful for our support from regional art councils, businesses, volunteers and Friends of Focal Point donors, and last but not least, our audiences.
