Volunteer Opportunities

The Staunton Music Festival is a nonprofit organization run by a part-time executive director, an artistic director, a volunteer Board of Directors, and 100+ talented and committed community members who donate their time and energy. From hosts and drivers to ushers and administrative assistants, the Festival thrives by virtue of our many fantastic volunteers! Common volunteer roles include:

  • PROVIDE HOUSING TO A MUSICIAN OR STAFF MEMBER

  • PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION TO/FROM LOCAL AND REGIONAL AIRPORTS

  • HELP AT THE FESTIVAL'S LUNCHES AND DAILY CAFE

  • USHERS AT CONCERTS

  • WORK AT THE BOX OFFICE WILL-CALL DESK

  • HELP MAINTAIN THE FESTIVAL'S BROCHURE AND POSTER PLACEMENT

Our volunteer needs change from season to season, so we invite you to contact us about your interest to help out. Plus, you will be invited to several social events to meet other volunteers, SMF performers, staff, and board members. Thank you!
