The Symphony has a great opportunity for anyone interested in volunteering. We’re looking for new volunteers, as well as hoping to reconnect with those of you who may have volunteered in the past. All are welcome—we have a variety of opportunities throughout the year, from monthly concert preparations during the season to stopping by The Symphony office to sort some press clippings. Volunteers may even lend a hand at our two fun-filled annual event fundraisers: our joyous Home for the Holidays
fundraiser, which will take place this season on December 5, and the always-exciting April gala
; the 2016–2017 season spring gala, titled “California Dreamin’,” will star a multi-course wine-tasting dinner straight from Napa Valley, plus an auction and dancing.
After the great successes of the year so far, with your help we’d like to make sure that the coming season is even better! If you would like to be involved on just a few days a year, for instance immediately before concerts, we’d love to get in touch with you soon so that we can ensure that your contact information is up-to-date and that we are aware of your interests and talents. The earlier we hear from you, the better equipped we’ll be to let you know well in advance if we have an opportunity you might like to participate in.
If you’d be interested in being involved more frequently, we are also currently seeking year-round Events Committee members! The committee meets approximately once a month (sometimes more often immediately preceding the events mentioned above) and we’d love to hear from any of you with experience bringing events to life, or just an enthusiasm for some of the areas where the committee needs extra hands: for instance, collaborating on publicity campaigns, helping to compile our mailing lists, working on online promotion, or soliciting items for our live auction. We’d especially welcome volunteers who have contacts within the business community to help find event sponsors and supporters.
