Driving for Artists and Guest Musicians
This typically requires:
A clean, reliable car, (and person)
Willingness to pick-up guest artists and conductors to and from the airport, rehearsal, and performance, media, orchestral and social engagements.
Reliability is the big thing here. A detailed itinerary with pick-up and drop-off times, addresses and contact information is provided, and it is important it be followed.
Rehearsals are during the week usually 7:30 -10pm and Friday 5 - 7:30 (typically arrive one hour before and leave right at the end.) The Saturday commitment is typically ALL Day (dress rehearsal
in the AM, pre-concert lecture, concert, post-concert dinner) and Sunday most of the day, depending on whether there is a musicale or just airport drop-off. If there is a Sunday musicale, you are
invited to stay for the event (and welcome to volunteer to work it, if YOU would like).
The benefits of this are:
Spending time and getting to know the guest artists from all over the world.
Attending the rehearsals while you wait (which is an incredibly exclusive thing, since most of the rehearsals are closed).
Parking at Popejoy hall -either in a backstage spot or a paid for parking garage spot.

Concert volunteers play a major role in the experience of the attendees. Greeted with a friendly smile, helped in locating their seats (not at Popejoy - they have their own ushers), shared
information about NMP's many performances and activities—all make a big difference in how the audience perceives the organization.
Depending on the venue, roles concert volunteers may choose include: Ticket Scanners, Greeters, NMP Information Table Staff, Backstage Monitors and Ushers.
A number of other
events may be held in homes or other facilities. They may be casual or more formal, but all are important to the ongoing support of the NM Philharmonic. The duties vary depending on the type of
event. At times we participate as an exhibitor at various events. If you are interested in working some of these social and public events, please indicate so on your Contact
We are always in
need of licensed alcohol servers!! If you'd like to help in this capacity, we will be happy to reimburse you for the cost of your license.
