The RCO is supported by volunteers! 

Volunteers create a positive concert attendance experience for audiences, enhance our visiting musicians experience in Reno by providing quick and convenient rides to rehearsals, and some even provide administrative office support.

We have a lot of opportunities to help out and we'd love to welcome you to join us! Volunteers receive a free concert ticket, and most of our volunteer roles are quick, and easy to complete. There's no long term commitment required, just help us out when you're available.

High School and college students wishing to fill volunteer hour requirements are welcome!

Volunteer Roles

Concert Ushers

Distribute programs, check tickets, welcome guests, and assist patrons in finding their seats. Volunteer concert ushers work for approximately 3 hours including attending the concert while they volunteer. We provide a seat in the concert hall for you.

Artist green room support

Monitor the musicians green room during a concert to ensure that our artists personal belongings are safe while they perform. Bring a book and enjoy some alone time! Green room support volunteers may request a comp ticket to a concert they're not volunteering for. 

Special Event Support

A few times a year the RCO needs extra help to support a special event. Events like our annual gala, concerto competition, and free summer concert require extra volunteers. Please let us know if you're willing to support an upcoming special event.


Pick up a visiting artist at the airport, transport musicians to and from rehearsal, or drive a visiting performer to an appearance. Volunteer drivers will need their own vehicle and will put their current car insurance policy on file with the RCO. Most of our driving needs are for drives taking 15 minutes or less, in the heart of Reno. 

Office task support

As-needed support is welcome from those who have experience with classical music and can support our staff in preparing music for concerts. 

We are also open to accepting specialty volunteers. If you have a special skill you think we could use, please reach out and we'll see if we can put you to work!
