We need volunteers to join our team of helpers. At concerts you could greet people at the door, help direct the audience to their seats, sell programmes or serve refreshments. Or you could help set up a rehearsal venue, put up staging, house or feed a musician. There is always a job for someone to do, and we are grateful for any help.
