Usher Registration

Thank you for considering serving as an usher for an upcoming Civic Symphony of Green Bay concert. We appreciate all our dedicated volunteers and couldn't have our concerts without you! Volunteer groups are welcome. Questions? Send an email to ushers@gbcivic.org or call 920-432-4676.

BENEFITS:

  • All ushers get to attend the concert for free!
  • Meet other volunteers and share your love of music.
  • Earn school or community service hours.¬†

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • Ushers arrive an hour before the concert and meet in the lobby of the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts building. St. Norbert College campus map
  • St. Norbert College staff will bring you into the Walter Theatre for a briefing where you'll learn the layout of the hall, location of restroom facilities and exits, emergency procedures, etc. Walter Theatre seating chart
  • Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the concert.
  • As guests arrive, you'll check tickets, hand out program books, answer questions, and help people find their seats.
  • For some concerts, we may also need help with fundraising/sales tasks or reception activities.
  • We anticipate a full house for our morning Music for Young Listeners concerts in February, so those performances will be slightly "busier" with all the excited school children.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Age 16+
  • Friendly, helpful demeanor
  • Effective communication skills
  • Dress:¬†please wear a white shirt with black pants if possible. This helps our patrons more easily identify who is an usher if they need assistance.
  • Cancellation: If you register for a specific concert and your plans change and you are no longer available, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can find a replacement. The venue has a minimum number of ushers required for each concert.
