Friends of the Arts is pleased to announce exclusive opportunities for our members.

Volunteer at Arts Events

Did you want to see the opera show, but tickets were sold out? Do you want to enjoy performances by a gospel choir, dance ensemble or theatre production for free?

Friends of the Arts members may serve as ushers for events in the Duke Family Performance Hall and the Concert Series. Ushering is a great way to support the arts at Davidson College while enjoying performances for free! Volunteering as an usher also allows the opportunity to experience performances, which are otherwise sold out.

Ushers take tickets at the doors, pass out programs and assist patrons in finding their seats. Usually ushers are asked to arrive at the event a half to one hour early, and are welcome to stay for the performance once the doors have closed.

If you are interested in volunteering at an event, please email the Director of Davidson Arts and Creative Engagement, Sherry Nelson, at, or call 704-894-2101.
