• Thank you so much to all who have signed up to volunteer next year!  A few volunteer positions are still open, and so please consider a position that matches a skill or interest.  Many of these positions require only a relatively small amount of time, but are critical to keeping DSAO going as a great community!

Stay Tuned for Summer Emails

We at OFA hope that you have a wonderful summer, and we will be in touch throughout with information about preparation for 2016-2017.  It is very important that each family have at least one email address that is actively monitored for DSAO news.  Email is the primary source of up-to-date information.  Please click the appropriate link at the bottom or reply to this email if an address needs to be deleted (“unsubscribe from this list”), changed (“update subscription preferences”) or added.  Thank you so much.

Thank you to all 2015-2016 OFA Volunteers!

2016-2017 DSAO Volunteer Positions

Thank you to each and every one of our parents who have committed time to volunteer with DSAO this year-whether it is concessions, ushering, chaperoning, travel coordination, or community outreach, the effort has been amazing and none of it could happen with our our parents.  Please take a look at the sign-up for 2016-2017  and reply to this email if you have any questions about roles and responsibilities.

Website Manager!

We are looking for a new Website Manager to continue the wonderful job done by orchestra parent Eric Trigg – Thank you Eric!

This volunteer coordinates with the Director, the Executive committee, Communications Manager and other leads as needed to provide web content updates throughout the year. Experience with web publishing tools such as WordPress is desired and required. Training available. CLICK HERE to go to the sign up page.

In addition to the team positions, there are positions available for the concerts as well as fundraising.

2016-2017 Concert Ushers

This is a great way to meet and greet Orchestra concert attendees-many of them orchestra families but also people who are new to DSAO performances. Once signed up (CLICK HERE), you will be on a contact list for our House Manager Julie Padilla to coordinate availability for each concert.

2016-2017 Fundraising

In addition to the auction opportunities, there are many ways big and small to assist DSAO, and we have great fundraising opportunities that only take a bit of time but have a big impact. Please reply to this email if you wish to assist with fundraising.

No contribution is too small.  Every minute of volunteer time is valuable and appreciated.
