From 1980 to the present, volunteers have contributed countless hours of service supporting the arts. We simply couldn’t work without the hundreds of dedicated individuals who donate their time and talents each year. Annually, this saves Overture Center over $400,000 in labor costs!
Overture Center is always looking for enthusiastic, customer service oriented individuals to become Volunteer Ushers. Our ushers provide invaluable services by assisting guests to their seats, answering questions, and most importantly, creating a pleasant and welcoming environment for our guests. As a Volunteer Usher, you will have an opportunity to meet many new people as well as see performances.
