Volunteer for Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble

Volunteer Opportunities:

There are many details that will be forthcoming about specific needs for the Percussion Ensemble season.  Please be patient until that information is finalized and released.  In the meantime, we fully expect need for volunteers in the following areas.

Driver: A driver with valid CDL license.  Will pick up rental tractor and retrieve equipment trailer from Corps Hall for transport to rehearsal or show site.  Expect at least one out of state trip, perhaps two.  Further details can be planned once rehearsal and competition schedule is released.

Kitchen Crew: Provide four meals per day – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Late Snack for about 40 members and staff.  This requires at least 2 people (a third is better and a fourth is welcomed). Most work will be at local rehearsal site or competition site.  Will need assistance on any out of state competitions attended – expect at least one.  Will need to pick up supplies from Corps Hall, Sam’s Club, and local grocery stores.  At least one person should take role of head cook/meal planner.

Uniforms: Measure members for uniforms which will be ordered.  Once delivery arrives, perform final fittings and alterations.  Perform repairs and alterations as needed through the season.

Prop Construction: Consult with the design team to devise prop design and construction schedule.  This is likely a team effort requiring multiple people.

Again, further details and needs will be fleshed out once the rehearsal and competition schedules are finalized and released.
