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!
