Volunteer Opportunities

Become a Part of The Chorus North Shore!

It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child. It can also be said that it takes a community to support a community chorus.

The logistics behind putting on a concert are mind-boggling.

Before the concert, there is publicity and ticket sales, design and printing of posters – and distribution of those posters.

Financing, grant-writing, venue availability. Clothing, costumes, music acquisition.

More publicity.

Leading up to the actual concert is the dress rehearsal – the fine-tuning.

On Concert Day, there are ticket-takers, Ushers, people to move risers and help set up the venue – and to break it all down, again. Our non-singing community.

We are looking for individuals to help us in these endeavors.

For more information, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Marya Machart at maryamachart@gmx.com.
