“Music is a vital part of existence. My volunteer shifts at the Winspear allow me to be part of the beautiful music of the ESO in a way that wouldn't be accessible to me otherwise. I always say Edmonton is the biggest small town there is, but volunteering in the arts really makes that true. The Winspear team is wonderful to work with and it is a joy to interact with the patrons while we love music together.”

Chantelle, Volunteer for 2 years.

“The Winspear is such an important hub for music in Edmonton. I’m very happy to volunteer there and help share the ESO’s music with as many people as possible. There’s really something for everyone, all ages and tastes, and I’m glad to see patrons appreciate the programming as much as the volunteers, staff and musicians do.”

Aidan, Volunteer for 3 years.

“The ESO/Winspear offers incredible music performed in a world class facility. Volunteering has definitely enhanced my musical exposure, while at the same time providing me the opportunity to learn a great deal about different kinds of music, the composers, and the stories behind them all. I love volunteering: assisting the patrons, and working alongside the staff as part of the volunteer team to ensure that everyone has a memorable Winspear experience. It's fun and very rewarding!”
