Guild volunteers have a long history of helping thousands of students into Popejoy Hall for a special concert. Here’s what to expect...

  • It’s easy –
  • Wear comfortable shoes.
  • It will be a beautiful fall morning, children’s voices filling the air, a hot-air balloon or two flying overhead, meeting other Guild members and enjoying the MUSIC.
  • Two 45-minute performances each day at 10:00 am and 12:00 noon.
  • The busses begin to arrive about 9:00 am for the 10:00 concert.
  • All the busses seem to arrive at the same time. A rush of excited kids.
  • Volunteers are strategically placed along the path to help guide students to the ushers waiting to take them into the concert hall.
  • Once the students are seated, we can relax and enjoy the concert.
  • After the concert, the students are released by their schools.
  • As the morning busses pull away, the 12:00 busses begin to arrive.
  • We can leave after the second wave of students are settled in the concert hall.
  • Frontier for lunch?

Excellent volunteer opportunity... because music matters
