Volunteer Usher Teams

Orchestra London is very grateful to each individual volunteer usher for their ongoing dedication to this organization. We owe many thanks to the tireless efforts of these teams. There are approximately 150 ushers that dedicate their time to making our customers feel settled and comfortable. Our ushers are an integral part of the performing arts experience - without them, our performances wouldn’t be possible.

For more information about Volunteer Ushering, please contact Leigh Anne Fraser at (519) 679-8558 ext 231 or email [email protected]
