Meet the talented, dedicated, and amazing individuals who volunteer their time and talent in support of Music Hall. Our volunteers get to spend time in a beautiful structure, discover interesting stories about its unique history and relate them to visitors from around the world. We also spend time together, working in teams and occasionally socializing at parties and organization events. It is a great way to give back to your community!

Friends of Music Hall has been a volunteer-driven organization since it was founded in the late 1980s. Volunteers are needed as tour guides, to help develop new tour content, to work on research projects, and to assist with office work.
