Volunteer at the Seattle Symphony

Volunteers are at the heart of the Seattle Symphony.

With diverse backgrounds and a love for symphonic music, Seattle Symphony Volunteers provide indelible support to our programs every season. Volunteers support all levels of the company, including helping with education events, assisting artistic and administrative staff, ushering at performances and much more.

The Symphony is a world-class organization that performs over 200 concerts and serves more than 315,000 people each season. This would undoubtedly not be possible without our dedicated volunteers. We invite you to take your place at the heart of the Symphony and be a part of our many volunteering opportunities!
