Be a Remote Volunteer Mentor (for Violin, Viola and Cello) with Pacific Symphony!

Save to Favorites


Pacific Symphony is the premier symphonic orchestra in Orange County, CA. Through exceptional musical performances, educational opportunities and community programming, Pacific Symphony inspires, engages and serves the Orange County community and Southern California region.

Like all nonprofit organizations, we need volunteers! We seek volunteers who are interested in giving back to the community while helping to spread the magic of orchestral music. Our volunteers enthusiastically advance the mission of Pacific Symphony through the contributions of their time, talent, resources, and ambassadorship. Our volunteers are the window to the Symphonic community and are a reflection of the diversity of interests and backgrounds that are found in Orange County.

We have an immediate need for volunteer mentors who play violin, viola or cello to work remotely with our Strings for Generations online program.

Presented by Pacific Symphony and the Irvine Chinese School, Strings for Generations provides a unique opportunity for students, family members and adults to learn about music, under the supervision of Symphony musicians.

Strings for Generations is geared toward student string players in grades 4-9, as well as family members or adults who join the ensemble on recorder or as string players.

Volunteer mentors are required to:
1.) play the violin, viola or cello at a High School level of competence
2.) be in High School (10th grade or above), college-age or adults
3.) help create a warm and welcoming environment for the students when on Zoom
4.) answer participant questions online
5.) help reinforce the teacher/coach's instructions
6.) assist the individual students as needed
7.) play and demonstrate passages and techniques on their instrument in the larger group (never solo)
