Get Involved!

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens
can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
-Margaret Mead

Syracuse, Utah is a beautiful little community which has many hidden treasures within its borders. One of these treasures is our Arts Council, its programs, and all the volunteer hours behind them. Please consider adding to our growing Arts community by volunteering your time! There are many ways that you can be utilized and appreciated – without setting foot on a stage! Contact us at volunteer@syracuseutaharts.org if you’re ready to share some of your time and talent with your community!

If you are still wondering where you fit in, here are some ideas…

Syracuse Symphony

One of the major goals of the symphony is to rehearse and perform the works of the standard orchestral repertoire. To achieve this goal, we seek 70-80 amateur musicians. Any player of any age who can demonstrate a proficiency in their instrument is welcome to join.

The Syracuse Symphony Orchestra will be under the direction of Tim Koster. We are still accepting letters of interest for leadership positions such as concertmaster, president, vice chair, secretary, librarian. For rehearsal and performance dates – or further information visit the Symphony Page.

Theater Committee

We are in need of volunteers who do more than just perform…there is so much more behind the scenes that goes in to each performance. While performances do need an exciting stage presence, the performances wouldn’t happen without all those volunteering on the production staff! It takes a lot to provide costumes, sound, lighting, scenery, and props, as well as ushers, ticketing staff, concessions and much more. If you can’t be a part of our ongoing theatre committee, consider joining the staff of our summer productions. Please contact us at volunteer@syarcuseutaharts.org with your questions or desire to volunteer!

Arts Council Board Member

None of these programs would be possible without the direction and countless volunteer hours of the Syracuse City Arts Council board. Without the planning, research and legwork of these individuals, our efforts would not have the structure and financial support needed to function. There are always opportunities and needs for volunteers within this council. If you are interested in a ‘year-round’ position with the Arts Council, email your experience and current interests to volunteer@syracuseutaharts.org
