Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Richmond Symphony. We offer two volunteer opportunities on a regular basis.


  1. Office Assistance: Volunteers can sign up to be notified of opportunities to assist in the office. This usually involves helping to stuff and stamp envelopes, though it can also involve computer work or crafts. Volunteers are notified by email when these opportunities are available. After 10 volunteer hours, volunteers receive a ticket voucher for 2 free tickets to a Richmond Symphony concert.


  1. Will Call/Front of House help: Volunteers arrive 1-2 hours before the concert and assist with distributing Will Call tickets. In smaller venues, volunteers might help with ticket taking, handing out programs, seating, guarding doors, or selling tickets. Patrons receive 2 free tickets to the concert they are working as well as free parking. These positions often require volunteers to stand for 1-2 hours at a time. Volunteers sign up to volunteer for these events through and online program called


If you are interested in either opportunity, please send your email and cell number to Richmond Symphony Patron Services at Please note which opportunity you are interested in or if you are interested in both.
