If you don’t play a musical instrument (or even if you do) and you would like to be involved with Desert Overture, there are many ways to help. Desert Overture is always looking for volunteers!
Here are several ways you can volunteer and be a part of Desert Overture.
Event Volunteers donate their time by helping us at our events. Typical positions include box office staffing, ticket takers, ushers, and stagehands.
Board Members serve on the DOLCE Board of Directors for a two-year term, beginning July 1. If you have experience in non-profit leadership, organizational development, marketing, fundraising, finance, communication, strategic planning, project planning, or similar skills, we encourage you to run for the board!
Board Committee Volunteers assist committees from the Board of Directors as needed. Examples of committees that commonly need volunteers include our Fundraising and Development Committee, which seeks outside funding for Desert Overture; the Production Committee, which helps with set/concert décor design, construction and concert logistics; as well as the Marketing Committee, which oversees publicity for our performances and events.
Third Party Fundraisers are an opportunity for community members to sponsor a fundraiser for Desert Overture. Desert Overture members are eager to help make each effort a success and we look forward to working with our incredible sponsors. Contact us if you are interested or want to learn more about any of these volunteer opportunities.
