Support for the Symphony Staff
Vanguard helps at the Sunday Symphonies (family concerts) with the petting zoo, distributing prizes, and answering basic questions. We help at Tiny Tots concerts to ensure orderly progress of the many, many little ones from the buses to the auditorium.
Vanguard assists the ASO office staff when they have a major job and need some extra hands. Sometimes this is a bulk mailing, sometimes phone call blasts, sometimes a special brunch, sometimes the population of a spreadsheet with data.
We greet concert attendees as they arrive. We help them with their Will Call or lost tickets. We answer basic questions (Where is the balcony? Which door do I go in? Is there a restroom on this floor?). We talk with concertgoers at the Symphony table, or sell them a CD.
