Information on all rescheduled, postponed or canceled events


  • The frequency of cleaning, and disinfection has been increased in all areas, especially all high traffic areas and touch points.
  • Electrostatic cleaning equipment has been deployed to ensure an exceptional standard of disinfection. Non-toxic cleaners kill SARS Co-V2 within 1 minute of contact.

Air Handling System

  • The Hult Center’s HVAC System is:
    • High Capacity exchange utilizing 100% fresh air directly from the outside.
    • A plenum based system, which is excellent for mitigating airborne transmission of viruses. The fresh air enters from the top of the room and moves out through the floor where it exits to the outside.
    • Filtered, prior to heating or cooling, fresh air is drawn through MERV 8 filters which are checked and changed regularly by trained HVAC technicians.
    • Silva Concert Hall and Soreng Theater completely exchange air 2.5 times and hour. The Silva Concert Hall moves over 1.5 million cubic feet of air.
