About Volunteer Committee Orchestra London
Orchestra London has over 300 volunteers working on a variety of projects, including as members of our Volunteer Committee. The Orchestra London Volunteer Committee is an indispensable part of our organization. Founded in 1951, they have a membership in excess of 120 dedicated men and women. The Volunteer Committee provides financial and social support for the Orchestra, with an annual contribution to the Orchestra of over $50,000. Our volunteers attend concerts regularly and are an integral part of the Orchestra London team.

In addition to our regular volunteers, Orchestra London actively encourages the youth of our community to consider volunteering with our organization as a means of fulfilling their volunteer requirements. We have been delighted with the response and commitments that we have received from the students.

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.
