There are so many ways to help us make a difference through the arts!
Serve on a Volunteer Committee
It’s a great way to meet new people, while using your time and talent to help us bring the joy of arts to so many. We have committees working on:
Jazz in July

Volunteer at our Events
No long-term commitment here. Volunteer for a few hours, or a day or two. The choice is up to you! From handing out event programs to helping with set up and tear down, you’ll look great doing so in your volunteer t-shirt. Sign up at Volunteerlocal.com
