Volunteer at a concert

The efforts of the Ensemble depend heavily on volunteers to carry out all the many tasks associated with producing a concert. We are looking for more volunteers, and free concert tickets are available as a thank-you if you:

  • Usher, monitor the box office, or stage manage at a concert
  • Stuff envelopes and prepare mailings
  • Design and produce programs
  • Assist singers with non-romance language pronunciation
  • Organize and present a reception

Hire us to perform at your event

Initially, we would be prepared to offer programs in the following musical styles:

  • Christmas music, including a mix of classical and popular carols and songs
  • Broadway selections or jazz arrangements
  • Madrigals and love songs
  • Selections from the standard classical choral repertoire

We would welcome and consider any other ideas you might have for musical themes or selections.

We will consider singing at any venue you choose. If instrumental accompaniment is desired, depending on the type of music requested, we will negotiate an additional fee to cover our cost of hiring an accompanist.
