The Friends of the NAC Orchestra is a registered charitable organization (BN 12895 5929 RR0001).


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:

  • help with auditions for the NACO Bursary concert;
  • assist the Orchestra at the annual Christmas NACO charity FanFair
  • work at the Family Adventures children’s concerts;
  • contribute articles for our Con Brio newsletter;
  • Aid in selling at the CD desk in the canal foyer


Bilingualism is preferred, but not mandatory.

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. Interested in being part of our dynamic team? Email:
