Frequently Asked Questions for Symphony Volunteers
What time do I need to arrive if I’m volunteering at a performance?
1.75 hours before the performance time. For an 8pm Saturday night performance, volunteers should arrive at 6:15pm. For a 3pm Sunday matinee, volunteers should arrive at 1:15pm.
Why so early?
Because our Concert Conversations begin one hour prior to performance time. Audience members will begin to arrive 1.5 hours before performance time. We need to be set up and ready for them.
Who should I report to?
The Director of Operations. She will be in the JDHS Commons or auditorium wearing a name tag that says “Director of Operations.” After you sign in with her, she will tell you what to do.
What should I wear?
Volunteers should wear business casual clothes unless otherwise directed. For specialty concerts, like on Halloween, dress may change. There is no official color scheme for volunteers. We will provide you with a name tag or pin that says “Symphony Volunteer”.
What compensation will I receive for my service?
The warm fuzzy feeling that comes from a job well done AND free admission for yourself to the event. Complimentary tickets are also given to those who house visiting musicians.
I have other obligations that prevent me from volunteering on weekends and I cannot afford a Symphony ticket.
We do not want cost to prevent anyone from attending the Symphony! We offer Pay-As-You-Can tickets at all mainstage concerts. Just head straight to the box office and donate a comfortable amount to sit in one of the Pay-As-You-Can general seating sections.
