Volunteer Opportunities | Opera Memphis


Our strong volunteer program is one of the things we are most proud of, and it is one of our greatest assets. Volunteers are a vital part of our work to put on our productions, make 30 Days of Opera possible, and provide the kind of help that keeps our office running. Whatever we are up to, our priority is to ensure that our volunteers have a fun, fulfilling experience. We host social events for volunteers each year and trade tickets for cumulative hours worked as part of that commitment. Whatever your skills, we can use them at Opera Memphis, and we promise you'll have fun with us! 

While we do not require the COVID-19 vaccination for our volunteers, we strongly encourage it. We currently have a masking requirement for all inside volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers agree not to attend an event if they have been exposed to COVID-19 or have any symptoms consistent with COVID-19.

Once you fill out the information below, Sarah Squire will contact you with all other documents and releases needed. Or you can contact her directly at (901) 202-4548 or by email.

We look forward to adding you to our team of wonderful volunteers!
