Oakland Symphony invites you to help us celebrate through music the place and people we call home. We are looking for kind, enthusiastic, and dependable folks to help in Will Call, guide new patrons through the Paramount, sell concert posters, and assist new and renewing subscribers. We will thank you with tickets to the show! Our MUSE VIVO students play side-by-side with the symphony in Rossini's Barber of Seville Overture, and Oakland's own Kev Choice premieres and performs his hip-hop piano concerto, Soul Restoration Suite.

We have 40 shifts available suited to varying skillsets and abilities.
