The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are looking for volunteer ushers who love music and love people. Our ushers take tickets, greet our patrons, hand out programs, direct the audience to their seats, and answer basic questions about our facility. Our basic usher attire is a white dress shirt (ties for men) and black slacks or skirt. Our volunters get to see and/or hear the performance when they usher, as well as earn points that can be redeemed for free tickets. We have daytime, midweek Young People's Concerts, midweek evening faculty and student recitals, and weekend Classical, Jazz, and World Music Concerts. The average event requires an usher to work 3-4 hours. Anyone can volunteer (minors must have written permission).
