Offer Your Time & Talents

The Buffalo Community Orchestra relies on more than just individuals with musical talent. The orchestra depends on the work of dedicated non-musicians and volunteers to make our organization successful. Volunteers provide support in many ways, large and small.

Here are some examples of opportunities:

  • Ushering at concerts
  • Marketing and publicity
  • Approaching sponsors
  • Post Concert Reception host/hostess
  • Financial development/fundraising
  • Community outreach and integration


Do you have other ideas or talents to share? You may have a way to contribute to the BCO’s growth and success in a way that we don’t even know yet. If you have a skill or interest that you would like to put to work helping to bring great music to our community, contact us to volunteer!


Many thanks to all of our donors for the 2023-2024 season
