Volunteering

Ushering

There are number of volunteer opportunities with the Rogue Valley Symphony. Most prominent is our esteemed team of ushers, who assist our patrons to have the best possible concert experience. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, please fill out our Usher form or contact the Box Office with your full name, a preferred email address, and your personal calendar in hand.

Ashland and Grants Pass performances rely upon the dedication of our volunteer ushers, who help to make concerts run smoothly and are often the first point of contact with Symphony patrons. An usher arrives before the concert and reports to the Patron Services Manager, Lisa. Before the concert, the ushers scan tickets, hand out programs, direct the flow of patrons in the hall, open and close the doors, and assist elderly or disabled patrons to their seats as needed. After the concert, the ushers work with the Patron Services Manager to collect programs and any personal belongings left in the hall.

A volunteer usher needs excellent people skills, the ability to stand for extended periods, the ability to work as a team, and a commitment to friendly service. Attire consists of black pants or skirt, and a white or black button-up top. This opportunity is available at the Ashland and Grants Pass venues.

If you’re interested in helping with events or other volunteer opportunities, stay tuned.
