Volunteer with Us!

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. They contribute to the community by supporting students and guest artists, and by helping to put on the symphony festival.

They are involved with students, guest artists, audiences, and sponsors, and help spread the joy of being part of a symphony. PRISMA volunteers also play an important role in community outreach and school education programs. There is an additional benefit: PRISMA volunteers get to meet new friends and spend time with old friends who share their appreciation of fine music. In recognition for their time, volunteers will earn complimentary access to concerts.

PRISMA looks for volunteers in the following areas:

  • Ushers
  • Box Office Support
  • Stage Crew
  • Drivers
  • Wine Pourers
  • Servers
  • Merchandise Sales
  • Homestay Hosts

With our move towards free tuition for as many students as possible with the Musical Merit Scholarship Fund, we need more homestays than ever! Our students come to Powell River from all over the world, and the community of Powell River is frequently cited as one of their favourite parts of the festival. If you’re interested in billeting a student or two or have any questions, do contact us.

Here’s what homestay hosts Madeleine and Fraser Field said about their experience hosting PRISMA students for the last couple seasons:

“Hosting a PRISMA home stay student is easy. The students are mature and look after themselves, and PRISMA provides their lunches and dinners. Just breakfast and a ride to and from the Complex needed. The benefits? Beautiful music in the house, meeting some of these talented young people, and helping PRISMA–win-win!”
