Concerts and Events Assistance
In addition to its own programs, Friends members provide staffing support to many of the Artist Series of Sarasota’s concerts and events.
Each summer, Friends volunteers solicit program advertising for the Artist Series’ handsome, full-color program book which is distributed at more than forty performances annually.
Literature Distribution and Marketing Support
A team of more than two dozen volunteers place and maintain Artist Series of Sarasota promotional literature in more than 130 locations in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
Greeting and Social
No one is a stranger for long at an Artist Series Friends activity or an Artist Series of Sarasota concert – patrons and friends are greeted warmly by our corps of volunteer greeters. For Artist Series of Sarasota Soiree Concerts which feature food and beverages as part of the concert experience, volunteers often plan, prepare and serve delicious offerings.
A volunteer committee writes, edits and mails a professional quality color newsletter “ACCENTS” to members bi-monthly to make them aware of the ever-changing activities and volunteer opportunities that exist within the Artist Series Friends organization.
Artist Series Friends devise and manage their own unique fund raisers. Proceeds go to help support the Artist Series of Sarasota’s Statewide Scholarship Program which provides financial support to career-potential young musicians.
