Work with the renowned Philharmonia Orchestra

Brought to you by the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Virtual Orchestra is an innovative, immersive experience that invites audiences to explore a symphony orchestra from the inside. Coming to Leicester from 8 October - 17 November 2018, the Orchestra are looking for a large number of volunteers and those looking for work experience opportunities across the period of 22 October - 17 November to help facilitate and run the project alongside their experienced team of event and technical managers.

There are three different roles on offer throughout the project:

Front of House volunteers will help welcome public attendees to The Virtual Orchestra installation, keep track of numbers, and answer questions from the public. You will be the welcoming face of The Virtual Orchestra. 

Technical volunteers will help facilitate the virtual reality experience within the installation and ensure equipment is being used safely and appropriately by our attendees. 

Evaluation volunteers will help the Philharmonia collect important evaluation data from schools, participants, and audiences at the installation. 

All volunteers will be invited to a scheduled training session in advance of the installation opening and will also receive a volunteer pack with full details about the roles, project, and organisation. All volunteers will be trained in each aspect of the project (front of house, technical, and evaluation) and there may be opportunities to work within each section depending on your availability across the project.

Whether you're looking to build your CV, give something back to the community, or involve yourself in a nation-wide audience engagement project, sign up today! For more information click here or contact Tom Spurgin on tom.spurgin@philharmonia.co.uk or 020 7921 3932.
