The Festival of the Sound runs on its volunteers—in more ways than you might think! From the friendly ushers who greet you at the Charles W. Stockey Centre to our amazing hospitality committee hard at work baking treats for our receptions, our volunteers do it all. Come and share your talent with us. If you would like to help out with any of our events, please look over our volunteer positions below and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
