Who We Are

Pacific Symphony is the premier symphonic orchestra in Orange County, CA. Through exceptional musical performances, educational opportunities and community programming, Pacific Symphony inspires, engages and serves the Orange County community and Southern California region.

Like all nonprofit organizations, we need volunteers! We seek volunteers who are interested in giving back to the community while helping to spread the magic of orchestral music. Our volunteers enthusiastically advance the mission of Pacific Symphony through the contributions of their time, talent, resources, and ambassadorship. Our volunteers are the window to the Symphonic community and are a reflection of the diversity of interests and backgrounds that are found in Orange County.

We need skills-based volunteers who have the time and expertise to assist our various departments in and outside of the Symphony Office. These departments are Finance, Marketing and Public Relations, Development, Artistic and Orchestra Operations, and Education and Community Outreach. We need skills-based professionals who have time to give to a project-based assignment, short or long-term, and who are experts in the following fields: Human Resources, Public Relations, Marketing, Social Media, Data Management, IT/tech, Web Development, Writing, Office Administration and more! If you have time, experience and a desire to make a difference with the Symphony, we want to hear from you!

We need general volunteers who have time to share with us for our education and community programs. These programs rely on our generous volunteers to engage Orange County youth in one-on-one and group activities, symphony performances and events, ticket sales, our Symphony Shop and much more!
