Volunteer Ushers are a vital part of the Department of Music's ticketed events.

Usher duties include the following:

  • Collecting tickets
  • Handing out programs
  • Counting attendance
  • Picking up discarded programs for recycling

The time involved in ushering is generally 1 hour in addition to the length of the concert, comprised of arriving 45 minutes prior to the concert start and staying approximately 15 minutes after its conclusion.

Ushers receive free admission to the events that they work at.
