Volunteering at BMC

From its inception in 1979, the Brevard Music Center Association (BMCA) has provided invaluable service to the Brevard Music Center. Its members are a diverse, educated, and arts-loving group, who impart a wonderful spirit of volunteerism and selfless participation that make them a model for the entire community. Volunteers are the "Ambassadors of the Music Center."

Volunteer Opportunities

The Brevard Music Center Association is the volunteer corps of the Brevard Music Center. It is comprised of more than 200 volunteers, some of whom work year-round. The most visible volunteers are those wearing the blue shirts at concerts. They are ushers, concession stand staff, and gift shop workers. They welcome patrons to concerts and sell raffle tickets. They serve at The Maestro Society Lounge, and at special events and receptions. In addition, volunteers tend to the landscaping of the campus, do off-season maintenance and repair to campus buildings, work in the office, and help with marketing efforts. There is something to do for everyone who wants to share their time and talent with BMC.

Registration for the 2023 season is now closed.

Friendly volunteers will interact with and give any necessary assistance to patrons. Orientation training attendance is required.

Non-Concert Committees


Use your handyman skills and work with others to construct, renovate, and maintain the buildings used by students and faculty. Tasks include carpentry, painting, demolition, etc. Work may be year round or seasonal.


Share your gardening skills by helping to maintain and beautify the BMC campus. Adopt an individual garden and/or work in friendly groups as we transition to a low-maintenance perennial-based landscape. Volunteers perform routine gardening tasks as well as occasional strenuous physical labor. The use of your own gardening tools is required.

Mailings and Deliveries

Help spread the word about BMC and BMCA activities through mass mailings and BMC program calendar deliveries. Tasks include stuffing envelopes, labeling, and sorting mailings throughout the year and/or delivering summer performance calendars to local and regional businesses each May.
