In this section

Aspen Medical has announced a partnership with The Canberra Symphony Orchestra (CSO), ahead of Llewellyn One: Seven Deadly Sins, the opening event in the orchestra’s flagship Llewellyn Series. The CSO has consulted closely with Aspen Medical to implement best-practice, COVID-safe measures.

“Our diverse network of dedicated partners and supporters are one of our greatest assets as an organisation,” said Rachel Thomas, CSO CEO. “We’re thrilled to be working with the expert team at Aspen Medical and we warmly welcome them to the CSO family.”

“We’ve been working with organisations across the globe since the start of the pandemic,” said Dr Geetha Isaac-Toua, Group Medical Director of Aspen Medical, “but as a Canberra-based company it’s very rewarding to be making a difference so close to home.”

“Our clinical and advisory teams have worked closely with the CSO and Llewellyn Hall to ensure that talented musicians can safely return to work and for the safety of all those attending these concerts,” Dr Isaac-Tuoa said.

A range of COVID-safe measures will be in place for Llewellyn One in line with ACT Government restrictions, including requirements related to audience capacity, contact tracing and cleaning protocols.

Audiences for this concert will be capped at 75 per cent of the Hall’s capacity. While regular seating configurations will be in place, patrons will be encouraged to be mindful of social distancing when moving around the venue. Hand sanitiser will be provided and the use of the Check in CBR app will be a condition of entry.

Artists travelling to Canberra for the performance will be required to meet all federal, state and territory requirements.
