Volunteer Opportunities

“Friends of the Burlington Symphony Orchestra”

A Community Based approach to supporting the Symphony

the Burlington Symphony Orchestra is looking for volunteers to help us be the most successful Burlington-Hamilton Community Orchestra we can.  We are seeking help in many different areas (as listed below) or you can tell us your strengths and we will use those to create a task or project.  This group would meet several times throughout the season to turn its collective power into a wall of support for the orchestra.  If you would like to be involved, please contact Liz Delaney, Manager of Orchestra Operations, at info@burlingtonsymphony.ca.

Some of the areas in which you might like to help are:

  • Advertising and marketing
  • Clerical work, graphic design
  • Community outreach – e.g. Promoting our orchestra in the community, mini-concert organization, children’s programming
  • Fundraising events like bake sales, silent auctions, galas; we will NOT ask you to solicit funds or do any sort of Corporate Fundraising
  • VIP reception organization, catering
  • Youth and the Symphony (a focus on getting youth connected to our orchestra)
  • Assisting the music librarian and the equipment manager
  • Consulting with the Board on special projects where you have expertise
  • Organizing special events to coincide with our concerts

Please note that high school students can volunteer as part of their 40 hour community service hours requirement for graduation
