Choir Alberta needs a number of volunteers to help make Choralfest a success! Volunteers are needed in a variety of roles, and they will have the opportunity to hear choirs from across the province perform in this festival, as well as observe our internationally-renowned clinicians at work.
CHORALFEST 2020 16-21 March at Knox United Church (Calgary) Evaluators |Cynthia Peyson-Wahl, Robyn Reeves Lana & Dr. Mark Sirett
Volunteer sign-up will be open in early 2020.
Reception/Registration Desk The volunteers working at the reception/registration desk are there to assist choirs with getting started with their Choralfest experience. They handle the initial contact with any choir that comes in, process their on-site registration, prepare the evaluator packets with the music the choir brings, and also help control the flow of traffic through the doors of the performance venue. They are the chief point of contact for all volunteers and choirs for the festival. Choir Ushers Each choir usher is paired with a choir for the duration of the choir’s stay at Choralfest. They help lead the choir from room to room and assist with keeping the festival on schedule. As each choir leaves the space, the choir usher also ensures that the room is put back in order for the next choir to arrive. If a conductor has a request or needs special assistance, the usher is the first point of contact to ensure that the conductor has everything they need for a rewarding Choralfest experience.
Host The host reads the biography of the choir for the audience and manages the AV rig for each choir’s performance. They also help with audience control, ensuring that the audience is quiet for each performance.
Festival Secretary The secretary sits with the evaluators and assists them with managing the paperwork for each choir. They also ensure that the evaluators have everything they need during their time at Choralfest.
Set-Up and Take-Down These people assist with the set-up of equipment, chairs, and organizing each space required at Choralfest.
