Volunteer at the CSO


Volunteers have always been crucial to the success of the CSO. They have been instrumental in providing a range of services and performing various activities during the events, which have helped in reducing the overall operational costs. These outstanding individuals have been highly appreciated for their dedication, hard work, and passion for their role in the orchestra.

Your contributions enhance our patron experience. You are an integral part of our community, and we are grateful to have you as a part of our CSO family.

 We could not do all that we do without your help! We have several opportunities available, including helping out during our concerts and being out in the community. If you are interested in becoming part of our team, please click the button below to fill out the questionnaire.
