What does a sun Valley Jazz & Music Festival volunteer do? Volunteers have many wonderful options to fit their talents and preferences. They have the choice to be in the large musical event rooms with dance floors that hold 900 jazz fans or in the smaller, intimate Satchmo’s room. Other volunteers work Property Management (facility and band setups), Drive/Shuttle van Team (for the Bands and Musicians), answer phones in the Communications Room, check-in jazz fans at the Sales & Will Call room or extend cheerful greetings and directions as a Lobby Greeter.
How much time during the Jazz & Music Festival does a volunteer work? Volunteers serve 12 hours total during the five day Jazz event.
Who assigns the days and hours? A Site Manager or Team Manager will coordinate with the volunteer which days and time shifts they prefer to work. Some Site Managers schedule their volunteers in 3 hours shifts (4 shifts = 12 hrs) and others schedule in 4 hour shifts (3 shifts = 12 hrs). Volunteers are needed from 7:30 am to as late as 1 am at some of the musical venues.
When would I have to be in Sun Valley? All volunteers report on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019. New Volunteer Orientation starts at 10 am. This is followed by an All Volunteer meeting at 11 am. Then all volunteers enjoy a fabulous buffet luncheon with their Site Manager and team members in the Limelight Room.
