Friends of the Symphony

Volunteer

Friends of the Symphony members and our volunteers apply their interests and skills in a variety of ways for our fundraisers, education events, member meetings, and activities.

Use the forms and information below to inquire about volunteering, or visit our Membership Page for more information on joining the Friends of the Symphony.


Fundraising

The Friends of the Symphony supports the Symphony financially through our fundraisers, and volunteers help to plan and carry out these events. Friends of the Symphony members may host mini-fundraising events in their home, or members can seek donations to our Endowment Funds, which help sustain orchestra salaries.

Education

Members provide activities for children and adults to expand their knowledge and appreciation of music. Volunteers are needed for our annual Musical Zoo, a cornucopia of musical experiences for children, and for our Composer Talks, where CSU music faculty discuss the featured composers of each upcoming concert.

General Meetings

Volunteers arrange for sites, refreshments, decorations, and programs for our quarterly business/social meetings. Members may volunteer to host a general meeting in their home.
