ClarinetFest® 2022

ClarinetFest® 2022


ClarinetFest® 2022 will take place in Reno/Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA, June 29-July 3. The Artistic Leadership Team – Christy Banks, Joshua Anderson, Soo Goh, and Jessica Lindsey – looks forward to presenting a wonderfully diverse and comprehensive program centered around the theme of Connecting People, Ideas and Cultures.

ClarinetFest® 2022 will be held at the Peppermill Resort in Reno, a Four Diamond AAA property. A free round-trip shuttle service will be available to take conference attendees directly from the Reno International Airport to the Peppermill Resort. For those traveling by car, the Peppermill has provided free parking (valet or self-park) with your hotel room reservation.

The conference will feature performances by the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra as well as emerging and established artists in solo and ensemble settings. The conference site will provide ample space for events and exhibits all in one convenient central location. The Peppermill is offering ClarinetFest® attendees several different price points for onsite lodging; there are nearby hotels to choose from as well. Additionally, the conference site has a variety of restaurants on the property. The city of Reno offers world-class entertainment and dining options within the city and is just a 30-minute drive to the beautiful Lake Tahoe resort area.


After consulting with our legal team, we will be asking ClarinetFest® 2022 attendees, artists, staff, and exhibitors to adhere to the COVID-19 Safety Protocols outlined below. 


By attending ClarinetFest® 2022, you acknowledge and fully understand the risks associated with contraction of the COVID-19 virus and other contagious diseases and agree to attend this event at your own risk. You expressly acknowledge that COVID-19 is highly contagious, and infection can result in serious illness and death. You acknowledge the risk of infection and transmission are higher in indoor facilities, that there are no safety precautions that eliminate the risk of contracting COVID-19, and that individuals with various underlying medical conditions may experience worse outcomes. You acknowledge you derive personal satisfaction and a benefit by virtue of your participation in ClarinetFest® 2022, and you are willingly attending ClarinetFest® 2022. Irrespective of the steps taken by the Company regarding COVID-19, you understand that participation in ClarinetFest® 2022 could increase your risk of being exposed to and/or contracting COVID-19. Notwithstanding the risks associated with COVID-19, you acknowledge that you are voluntarily participating in ClarinetFest® 2022 with knowledge of the danger involved. You hereby agree to accept and assume all risks of illness, personal injury, psychological injury, pain, suffering, property damage, and/or financial loss related to COVID-19, arising from your attendance at ClarinetFest® 2022, whether caused by the ordinary negligence of the company or otherwise. 


In accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), the International Clarinet Association is requiring ClarinetFest® 2022 performers and attendees (including minors, volunteers, staff, guests, contractors, and vendors) to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. Reasonable accommodations may be granted. 

You will therefore be required to show proof of vaccination in order to pick up your badge on-site. The ICA will not store information about your vaccination status; a visual check of your documentation will be completed by our registration staff. Vaccination is a vital tool to reduce the presence and severity of COVID-19 cases. The ICA has adopted this policy on mandatory vaccination to safeguard the health of our members from the hazards of COVID-19.

As part of helping all participants stay safe and healthy, all registrants must adopt the following practices:

  • Your vaccination documentation MUST clearly demonstrate that you are fully vaccinated according to the current CDC definition, meaning it must show your vaccination type and date(s) so that our registration staff can confirm that you have received your second dose of a two-dose vaccine, or your first dose of a single-dose vaccine, at least 14 days before arriving on-site at the event. If you are eligible, we highly encourage you to obtain your booster. We will accept all COVID-19 vaccines that have received Emergency Use Authorization or full approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO).

    • Provide proof of full vaccination through one of the following methods:

    • Official CDC or Vaccination Card from Country of Residence (international attendee)

    • A digital vaccination record issued by a government body, healthcare provider, or authorized COVID-19 vaccine administrator, either displayed on your smart device or printed out

    • A third-party app that validates your vaccination record with a government body, healthcare provider, or authorized COVID-19 vaccine administrator (such as the SMART Health Card or Common Pass

      • Please note: The free/self-reported versions of apps like CLEAR and AZOVA are NOT acceptable.

    • If you have any concerns about whether your proof of vaccination meets the above criteria, please email BEFORE the event so that we can better support you.


The ICA requires all persons above the age of two years old to wear a well-fitting mask that covers their nose and mouth while at all ClarinetFest® 2022 events inside the Peppermill Resort. The CDC and TSA strongly recommend surgical-style masks such as N95 and KN95 over cloth face coverings. The ICA requests that attendees protect one another by wearing these types of masks while attending ClarinetFest® 2022 if possible. Bandanas and neck gaiters will not be permitted at ClarinetFest® 2022.


  • When on stage for performance, conductors and performers may remove their mask for performance. They must reapply their mask immediately upon leaving the stage. 

  • Convention presenters may remove their mask when actively presenting during ClarinetFest® 2022.


  • Due to the limited space available on stage, the ICA strongly encourages large ensemble performers to wear a musicians’ mask designed to allow the mask to remain on while playing. Otherwise, performers must wear their mask at all times when not actively playing (during long rests, breaks, etc.). These masks can be purchased at various retailers. Examples can be viewed at the links below.

  • If they can maintain distance from others, conductors and organizers may remove their mask when actively conducting or addressing the organization.


  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory illness, please do not attend ClarinetFest® 2022.

  • Communicate with all appropriate parties if you test positive for COVID-19 prior to the event.

  • When trialing equipment in the exhibit hall, attendees should adhere to all trial procedures set forth by each individual company including the signing of waivers.

  • Wash hands or use hand sanitizer frequently when available.

  • Stay informed of local county and state health guidelines for the state of Nevada.

  • Failure to adhere to the above guidelines may result in removal from the premises and the termination of your ClarinetFest® 2022 registration without refund.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact ICA Executive Director Jessica Harrie at

*Please note that these requirements are subject to change due to the ongoing and changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. Any changes to these policies will be communicated via email as necessary.
