Benefits of Volunteering

The HPO is grateful to all of the individuals who volunteer their time and resources to help support classical music in Hamilton!  Some of the benefits our volunteers receive including the opportunity to meet new people, engage with and support orchestral music, and receive two free tickets to an HPO concert. Volunteers also receive a discount to purchasing additional HPO concert tickets, are invited to attend one rehearsal in the season and get a behind-the-scenes look at how an orchestra is run!
