Symphony seeking volunteer support
Music lovers can meet musicians, staff and other volunteers within one of Nanaimo’s largest arts organizations.
The Vancouver Island Symphony wants to increase the size of its Ambassadors Club by hosting a monthly meeting for coffee, tea and snacks at Origin at Longwood, 6205 Oliver Rd.
Symphony ambassadors fill a variety of roles, including fundraising, special events planning, organizing rehearsal refreshments, providing office support and assisting with publicity.
The symphony hosts eight performances at the Port Theatre annually, plus education concerts for elementary school students, two symphony community days, Noteworthy Kids music club, Symphony Sizzle – a gala fundraiser – Symphony Sweeps charity raffle and more.
Ambassador Club meets Mondays and often features speakers and musicians, beginning Oct. 3 and running until May 7. Volunteers can participate in all or a few activities.
