Make a Difference by Volunteering
We love our volunteers! You are paramount to our success. There are a variety of ways to volunteer, depending upon your interests. You can help by ushering at concerts, joining the Symphony Guild, working in the office, volunteering on various committees or help with planning and decorating for the Annual Symphony Gala.
On-going Volunteer Needs
Our volunteer ushers are paramount for a successful concert. If you enjoy helping people, and have a desire to attend a concert for free, than ushering is for you. Ushers arrive approximately one hour prior to the concert and assist concert-goers in finding their seats. They also hand out programs, provide information to patrons and notify Symphony staff of any concerns prior to, or during the concert. Ushers are welcome to stay and enjoy the concert for free!
There are always exciting concerts and events coming up, and the amount of things to complete in order to make them a success is constant. Volunteers are welcome to assist the symphony office in preparing mailings, answering phones, filing and assisting in special projects.
Promotional Poster Distribution
If you are “out and about” in the community, then you may enjoy lending a hand in distribution of promotional posters for concerts and events. In a tight-knit community like Grand Junction, often times promotional posters are one of the best ways to inform people of an upcoming concert and event. This volunteer opportunity is great because you can assist in distributing a few posters, or you can take an afternoon and help us cover the Grand Valley.
There are several committees that make the symphony run smoothly. There are currently opportunities to serve on the Gala, Marketing, Development or Education Committees.
Board of Directors
The Grand Junction Symphony board is made up of volunteers who are passionate about arts and music in the Grand Valley. Board members are volunteers that assist in the planning and vision-making of the organization. They also roll up their sleeves and assist in executing events, fundraising and more.
