The group is looking for friendly people to become a core group of dedicated volunteers. The plan is to create a group that will enjoy working and socializing together, while helping to promote the orchestra and its mission to the community of Queens.
People who are interested in music and have some extra time to volunteer are welcomed. The QSO performs year-round in both indoor and outdoor settings, and works with some of the great artists of our time including superstar tenor Daniel Rodriguez on Feb. 14 and world-class violinist Cho-Liang Lin on March 28.
The group will look to the club for support in the following ways:
Serve as ushers at concerts
Pass out programs and collecting audience information at summer concerts
Working a phone bank to encourage ticket sales
Help distribute QSO information throughout the community
Help QSO letter and packet distribution
In return, active volunteers will receive:
50 percent off of the full ticket price for QSO concerts
Personal introductions to the QSO Music Director, musicians and guest artists
Special invitations to the holiday party and all VIP receptions
Special reduced ticket price for the annual QSO Gala
Free subscription to Symphony Sound-Off, the QSOs official newsletter
Invitation to QSO Volunteer Club parties
Free QSO T-shirt
