The Friends of the National Arts Centre Orchestra are a dedicated group working to support the orchestra in a variety of music related activities.
Our volunteers have many responsibilities, including the following:
drive student musicians for the Summer Music Institute;
help at the Student Matinee concerts;
help with auditions for the NACO Bursary concert;
meet and greet people on Launch events;
provide and sell baked goods at the annual Christmas NACO charity FanFair;
work at the Family Adventures children’s concerts;
assist the NAC Music Department in required office work when needed;
contribute articles for our Con Brio newsletter;
sell memberships as needed.
Volunteers also help in raising money for student bursaries by:
assisting with the silent auctions before and after concerts;
selling CD’s before and after concerts;
assisting at special social events.
Bilingualism is preferred.
Volunteers who work with the vulnerable must successfully complete a Police Records Check for Service with the Vulnerable Sector (PRC). This is a National Arts Centre requirement. The check is free for anyone who needs it for volunteer work. The NAC will provide the necessary letter and requirement details. A PRC from another organization is acceptable.
This is now policy for all new volunteers in whatever capacity they choose to offer their services.
