Age Minimum (with Adult): 18+, Minimum Age:18+

Referral: Chicago Sinfonietta Symphony Hall

Description: Volunteers will do a variety of tasks at our concerts. This may include putting inserts into program books, distributing program books, assisting their Box Office with distributing tickets, passing out surveys, ushering, assisting during their Audience Engagement activities, and selling raffle tickets.

Impact: Chicago Sinfonietta is a unique organization that is both artistically innovative and socially conscious, and the people the organization attracts are eclectic, passionate, and fun-loving. While the work they put on stage is often larger-than-life, they are a relatively small organization, so serving 2,000+ audience members in one evening is a challenge without lots of helping hands! Their volunteers become an extension of their unique customer experience and truly value their contribution of time and energy.

  • Individuals (volunteers who come on their own)

Partner Information: The Chicago Sinfonietta is a professional orchestra dedicated to modeling and promoting diversity, inclusion and both racial and cultural equity in the arts through the universal language of symphonic music.  Our core values are built around being bold and daring in all aspects of our work, providing a source of connectivity through music and ensuring and inspiring a continued investment in diversity and inclusion in classical music.
