Non-Member Opportunities

Not a singer? Sorry, EVERYONE is a singer!
But perhaps you don't want to perform with the Society, but want to help us and be a part of our mission of bringing great choral works to the Harrisburg region? Here are some opportunities to consider:

Orchestra and Soloist Opportunities

The Society performs masterworks of the choral literature, and these works require the accompaniment of solo performers and orchestras. Over our many years the HCS has recruited some of the finest musicians in the region to be a part of our concerts, and we have a list of many individuals who are regular performers with us. But we are always looking for more talented musicians interested in performing with us!

If you are a vocalist with experience in the repertoire, or an instrumentalist with experience in an orchestral setting, send your resume and an introduction to our music director at musicdirector@harrisburgchoralsociety.org. Note: Soloists and orchestra members are selected at the discretion of the music director: Resume submission is not considered an engagement of a contract.

Join the Board

The Harrisburg Choral Society has, since it's inception, been a part of the greater community of the region. Many of the supporters through the years were patrons or simply members of the community who devoted their time and expertise to the organization to help them further their goals.

The Society's constitution allows for non-singing "community member" seats as part of the Board of Directors makeup. The HCS has always strived to include non-singing board members as a part of our decision-making and operations team. Community members bring their experiences and networking to the board, allowing the Society to grow and become more financially sound and operationally stable.

If you are interested in being on our Board, contact our board president at info@harrisburgchoralsociety.org with a short resume and introduction. If you are affiliated with a current HCS member please include this information as well. Board members must be voted to the board by the general membership at our bi-yearly voting session at the start of our fall and spring semesters.

Be a Volunteer

Do you follow the Harrisburg Choral Society's activities as an audience member, or perhaps you know someone in the Society and want to support their efforts?

As a non-profit organization, we are always looking for volunteers who can help us achieve our goals season after season. Do you have skills in marketing, design, administrative tasks, or media production? The Society is always looking for particular expertise we can use for our operations. Contact us at info@harrisburgchoralsociety.org if you are interested in volunteering your skills.
