The Charlotte Symphony is a nonprofit organization that welcomes the generous help of community volunteers. Each season, various departments offer volunteer opportunities from fundraising campaigns and events, to stagehand operations, to helping prepare for educational programming that positively impacts the lives of area youth.
Ongoing opportunities are for volunteers that wish to commit to a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly schedule.
Event-specific opportunities are for volunteers that are interested in one-and-done jobs based upon their availability.
We appreciate your interest in helping us spread our mission of delivering exceptional musical experiences!
