Volunteer

BDDS loves its volunteers! There are many ways in which you can help support BDDS. Join with your fellow music lovers to assist us “off stage.” Besides seeing your name in our program­––without playing an instrument on stage­­––you’ll be rewarded with new friendships, a closer look at BDDS, and our undying thanks.

Here is a sample of some of the things you can help with:

  • Distribute brochures and posters
  • Staff a table at the concerts (You might sell CDs or Dinner Drawing tickets)
  • Usher at Taliesin or Stoughton concerts
  • Drive artists to and from the airport
  • Brainstorm and procure door prizes
  • Help with outreach concerts
  • Deliver meals to festival artists
  • Help with ticket sales and in the office

Please email us at Crownover@bachdancinganddynamite.org or call (608) 255-9866 to indicate your interest.

We’d love to have you!

Our undying thanks go to our wonderful volunteers:
