League Volunteer Council

Fifty Years of Service

This year’s League of American Orchestras’ National Conference in St. Louis will feature the usual rich variety of learning, creative thinking, and networking with peers in the industry. But the Conference, which runs June 18-20, will be particularly memorable for one set of League members: volunteers. In addition to seminars, events, and meetings customized just for volunteers, this year the League will honor its national Volunteer Council for 50 years of outstanding service, helping orchestras across the country. The League’s Volunteer Council provides leadership skills and assistance to orchestra volunteers through ongoing education and communication, informing volunteers of important issues and delivering learning and leadership development to orchestra volunteer associations nationwide.

What does it take to be a volunteer at orchestras today? In the video below, four members of the Volunteer Council talk about the joys of volunteering for their home orchestras, the importance of the League to the volunteer community, and advice they would give to others considering volunteer work.
