Missoula’s International Choral Festival would cease to exist without the support of our hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers!
We need 100+ volunteers to work with Festival organizers during the months leading up to the Festival and throughout Festival week to help produce a successful event. Shifts range from two to five hours and many volunteers sign up for multiple shifts throughout the Festival.
Participating in the Festival as a volunteer is a highly rewarding experience! Volunteers enjoy “behind-the-scenes” access to Festival concerts and events; face-to-face cultural exchange with visiting choirs and immense satisfaction knowing they contributed to the success of this prestigious international event and one of Missoula’s most beloved traditions.
