Edmonton String Players Association is a volunteer run, non-profit organization and federally registered charity. This means that the Music Enrichment Program is able to remain affordable and accessible to students across socio-economic borders. Without the time and support of volunteers, the Music Enrichment Program would not be able to continue.

Thank you to all of those who volunteered their time in various ways throughout the last season!

The Volunteer Deposit for the 2023/24 season is $300 per family

Deposit must be received in the form of a cheque:

Post-dated to June 1, 2024 and made payable to the Edmonton String Players Association

The Volunteer Coordinator will distribute Volunteering Sign-up sheets via email for events such as Concerts, Rehearsals, Fundraisers, etc. All Sign-ups will be on a first come first served basis. ESPA cannot guarantee there will be enough positions for everyone to fulfill their requirement in this manner – please plan accordingly!

Your deposit cheque will be returned to you upon completion of volunteer hours for the season. Two ways to fulfill these hours are:

  • Serve on the ESPA Board¹
  • Attend at least three ESPA Meetings²

¹ Position must be held for the duration of the season or until the next AGM.
² Schedule will be provided in advance via email and can also be found on the Calendar.
