Welcome,
Student Volunteers!

Fall 2022 Friends of Chamber Music (FCM) Student Volunteer Information

We are delighted that you want to work with us to put on these special concerts by world-class musicians.  Your tasks for the concerts are quite simple, but extremely important.  They enhance the professional quality of these musical programs for the community, and they give you an up-close-and-personal look at what goes into presenting something as enjoyable as a 21st-century concert of classical music.

Let’s Work Together!
